Hello

My name is Allen. By day I’m a software engineer, building the front and back ends of sophisticated web applications. I’m currently working as a director of engineering at a startup called Affirm, with prior gigs at Counsyl, Square, and Google.

I registered allenc.com back in 2011 to jot down my thoughts around work and various hobbies. With work, I primarily write about technology, software development and people management. My hobbyist blogging topics consist of stimulating books, video games, and living in the San Francisco Bay Area.

When not wordifying my opinions onto virtual parchment, I can be found hanging out with my wife and our incredibly energetic children.
