<site_title> :: About</site_title>


My name is Roland Allen. 

I live in southern Orange County, California, which is half way in between Los Angeles and San Diego.

I enjoy travel, holidays, hiking, cooking, the beach and people who are respectful of others, particularly those on the margins of society. I like having rocking chairs on my porch. I enjoy sharing great meals with friends in many corners of the world.

I've spent my life in "the Academy" - having been a college and university admissions officer at Westmont College, Colby College, MIT and Stanford University.
