Allen was appointed as Regional Director for the Central VA area in 2009.
A native of the City of Richmond, Allen grew up in a Victorian era home in the city's downtown. It was there that he had his first brushes with the paranormal. Allen was exposed to the city's history and lore at a very early age. That sparked a lifelong interest in history and the paranormal which ultimately lead him to join CPRI in 2007. In joining CPRI, he was thrilled to find a group that approached the study of the paranormal in such an interesting and professional manner. In addition to working as the Public Affairs Officer for CPRI, Allen also serves as investigator with the Central Virginia regional team.
Allen has a Bachelor's of Science degree in Criminal Justice from Virginia Commonwealth University with minor courses of study in sociology and urban planning. He has spent nearly twenty years involved in the public safety field including search and rescue, EMS and law enforcement. Allen has spent the last thirteen years serving in law enforcement and currently works as a criminal investigator. His interests include almost anything involving history (especially WWII), collecting and reproducing sci-fi movie props and costumes, traveling, and reading. Allen currently lives in Richmond with his very patient wife, Monica, his young daughter and their canine son, Ned.
