About David Allen

After dropping out of College to focus on video production and graphic design, David decided to become a strength coach. And, after deciding to no longer be a strength coach, he went back to college. This resulted in a Masters degree in mathematics. His wife, fortunately, is very supportive. Currently, he is living in Toulouse, France where his wife teaches English. Apart from his work, you might find David café loitering, rock climbing, or skiing. He does, in fact, enjoy most caffeine-fueled, mountain-based activities.
