About Allen

I love creating things and perfecting products. I run Steamclock Software, where we build polished web and mobile apps in Vancouver. Previously, I was a Software Engineer at Apple.

My job involves product design, development, teaching, and speaking. I’m intensely interested in how great software can be. In my downtime, I play guitar, host a podcast, and play on a hockey team comprised entirely of programmers.


  • Steamclock Software: We make products for clients as well as ourselves. We also have a blog, where we show our work.
  • Party Monster: An iOS app for running music at parties and road trips.
  • WeddingDJ: An iOS app for planning and running the music at weddings.
  • VanCocoa: The Vancouver Cocoa speaker series.
  • VanJS: The Vancouver JavaScript speaker series.
  • My resume: What one would expect.
  • Project List: An exhaustive catalog of most things I’ve worked on.

Talks and Podcast Appearances

I love teaching and discussing tech and other topics. Sometimes, people record it.
