Allen was born and raised in the Bay Area and is a die-hard Warriors fan. After graduating from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, he moved to Los Angeles and worked on integrated campaigns for world renowned brands. While at David&Goliath, he was lucky enough to produce Super Bowl fan-favorites for Kia and Jack in the Box.
His favorite part of advertising is seeing his ideas come to life and working with talented people from all walks of life to make it happen.
Advertising took Allen all the way across the world to TBWA Greater China in Shanghai. As the CD, he led the teams for Adidas, Booking.com, and Intel. He also won his Adidas client’s first Cannes Lion in over 10 years.
Recently, he has found his way back home to the Bay Area and to M/H. He is currently working on integrated social campaigns for Audi, Staples, StubHub, and also winning new business in which he cannot name.
When he’s not in the office thinking of new ways to convince people to buy things, he is off traveling with his wife and his newborn son or hiking with his dog. In his spare time, he also moonlights as a wedding MC.
