Executive Producer | Co-Host


Allen is a director, editor and overall film buff. He's been podcasting since 2010 and was on the ground floor when new media exploded into today's culture. His work extends across commercial, television and film for a diverse range of clients.


Film and podcasting are his passions so he couldn't be happier to be a part of Tame Aperture, discussing and dissecting all genres of cinema. But, you'll never see him light up more than when talking horror.
