After moving to New Zealand from Canada in 1986 looking for an adventure, Allan is part-owner of a computer development company in New Zealand. When not playing the guitar, he likes to build furniture – its hard finding time to do everything! His guitar playing goal is to become competent and to enjoy the journey to competence.
