Allan is passionate about his family, international travel, construction projects, and community transformation by helping refugees and people at risk. He lives in the mountain foothills outside of Larkspur, Colorado with his wife, Kathy, and a refugee “daughter” going to high school.

They use their home as an informal community transformational training center.
