Allen is an entrepreneur first, and an investor second. He surfs, boxes, blogs, and is a technology fanatic. He doesn’t have a filter on his mouth, and is not working on it. He has had opportunities that don’t matter, such as being mentioned the prerequisite amount of times in the paper, or listed in the most this, or the youngest that. He has also had opportunities that do matter, like having amazing mentors and working with crazy smart team members. He is the first person in his family to attend college; he is especially proud of his education.
