Hey, I'm Allen!

Seattle, Washington

I'm a filmmaker, author, and board game creator. I'm the writer, director, and producer of the feature film thriller In My Sleep, that won multiple festival awards, played in 15 US cities, sold to 70 countries, and is available on Amazon or iTunes. I'm now prepping my next film based on my novel, Hooked, a romantic comedy.


I've also created five games that have won 38 awards and have been played by hundreds of thousands of people all over the world. Maybe you're one of them!


I graduated from New York University’s film school and have a deep love for the Big Apple. I married my Persian princess and have two snuggly kids. I love all things chocolate and visiting Disneyland as much as possible.
