Allan grew up in the country, and continues to love the outdoors, encouraging Ashley to take up hiking. Today the two spend a lot of time outdoors hiking with their two dogs. (He makes sure to keep some emergency essentials on hand during all their hikes for when Ashley inevitably stumbles and gets a new scrape, bruise, or sprain.) Other than hiking, hobbies include playing guitar (acoustic), reading, being a coffee snob, and playing video games. Some of his favorites include Mass Effect, Halo, Battlefield, and old Sega Genesis games like Sonic the Hedgehog and Cool Spot (the game with the 7 Up spot. Does anyone remember that game?)
Even though Allan’s true love (other than Ashley) is the outdoors, he spends his days inside working on a computer as a web developer.
