Allen

Before coming to Crutchfield I spent 8 years in the IT industry doing everything from desktop support, to working on servers and telecom systems. When the opportunity presented itself to join the Crutchfield team I didn't think twice to leave my old career behind, and this has been a much needed change of pace. Working in the IT field I was always working on the latest and greatest in technology but now I get a chance to work with the latest and greatest in FUN technology! Getting a chance to play with and discuss toys such as these on a daily basis doesn't feel like work at all.

I consider myself somewhat of a film buff, and I love going to the movies. I also have a great love for home theater- seeing, hearing, and feeling the movie as the director intended gives you the full film experience. I'd eventually love to build a home theater that could rival that of the big screen!

As a teenager of the late 90's and early 2000's with rise of the internet, search engines, file sharing, and being able to burn cds from your home PC- having a CD player in the car was of the utmost importance! I remember spending a few weekends installing aftermarket receivers and speakers in my first few cars with no guidance. It wasn't always pretty but I always managed to achieve what I thought at the time was great sound. I wish I had known about Crutchfield Mastersheet's at the time! Amazing how things change so rapidly, having your entire music collection in your pocket everywhere you go. What's next? I can't wait to see.

In my spare time enjoy running, lifting weights, watching movies, and spending time with my family. My daughter is a movie buff in the making, at 3 years old she can recall and recite lines from many of her favorite movies. She never fails to put a smile on my face, make me laugh, and melt my heart. Feel free to give me a call to discuss your needs and I'll help you decide on what gear is best for you!

Great experience with Allen. Listened to what I needed, very quickly proposed an option that I hadn't considered. I did a little research, google-youtube and found Allen's recommendations to be spot on. I left Allen a voicemail, and within 8 minutes he called back. Wow, who does that anymore! I have my order placed, feel comfortable that I will have installation support, and excited to get my equipment. I have more equipment needs this year, and will seek out Allen for his recommendations when I am ready to buy. Thanks!

Allen's approach to my inquires was both comfortable and professional. In less than 5 minutes Allen was able to see the vision I wanted for my auto and pull together the exact package in the price range I wanted. Allen is definitely a professional I look forward to working with again.

I recently ordered a radio from crutchfield with Allen and I have got to say with his help setting it up it was a breeze and with being new to this I had of course some weird questions he really listened to me and help me get the job done and it works great. I also asked him about some other products and he listened and had great feedback with me and didn't just try to sell me on the expensive stuff but the stuff he knows works. I will definitely be doing business with Crutchfield again and with thanks to Allen I'm sure it will be easy doing so.

I presented to Allen a super long list of features that I wanted in my GPS receiver. He was very careful and thoughtful in helping me to narrow down the receivers into what appeared to be the best value for my dollar. Also, he pointed out to me the open box items that I could substitute in my order to save a few bucks. Thanks, Allen! Glad you are on the team.

Allen helped me with an issue I had with the install of my unit. Took him a minute and knew exactly what I did wrong. After being frustrated for hours, a one minute phone call had me up and going. Thanks
