Well, my name is Allen and I live in Florida, I was born February 11 1963 in Madrid Spain into a US Air force base. My Dad was American born in Salem Oregon. He was in the army for many years and went to Vietnam, he passed away years ago, we left him when I was 5 years old, and i saw him only one more time in his house at Las Vegas, I was 18. My Mom is French born in Casablanca Morocco. I was raised part in Spain some in the Us, but mostly in Marseille France.
I went to school for many years, but never graduated, i hated school so much.

I spent all my summer vacations in Spain (Playa De Aro) with my family to my uncle's and ant's house (Robert an )
. They invited us even if we were too many for the apartment. I had a wonderful time, while others didn't have that chance, and couldn't go nowhere
My first job was in Spain in a swimming pool as a bartender, I was 14. Then I started to work in a discotheque as a public relation
. I could do anything there, I was bartender, door man, disc jockey, and translator. After that I had many small jobs in France, it was tough to make a living. I wanted to go to the States, so I went to NY and stayed with my ant and cousins, it was winter and very cold, I worked in a fruits and vegetables store for 6 months, then went to San Francisco to another ant's house. She has been very nice to me, and my cousins too. I stayed 6 months there, went to school for a better English and went back to Spain.
One day my ant Mireille wake me up telling me than my uncle Robert got me a job over seas. So I started to work in Egypt for an oil company (Total) at Port Said (Suez canal). I was handling supervisor, then became manager. I was in charge of trucks, cranes, forklifts, bulldozers, cars, base maintenance, loading and of loading boats and trucks. I learned to drive them all in case a labor was missing or preying. Then the base closed and was sent home. 2 months later they called me back to go to work in Egypt again but at Alexandria as an exceptional convoy supervisor for E.T.A.L. I stayed there 3 months only. Egyptians fired all non Egyptians. They wanted to do it all by them self. 6 months after they went out of business. Too bad........
I was back to Marseille again, and worked for a Windsurfing compagnie for 3 years(serfiac), it was fun. After that I worked for my brother also worked in a bar and a discotheque.
Then i went to Florida for vacations once and fell in love. 1 month later i moved to Florida and never left. I started to sell clothes at the flea marked, but it didn't work out. I got a job in a tee shirt store and worked there for 3 years. Finally i opened my own business in 1995 and closed it in 2004.
