Story
Tagline
Blogger, educator, traveler, amateur photographer (digital/film), Canonista, beach-goer, hiker, foodie.
Introduction

I drive a Subaru and promise to let you be more interesting. 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. 

I value people who are thoughtful, and I am fascinated by the richness and complexity of Creation and Culture. (Flannery O’Connor would probably use the word “mystery” where I use “complexity.”)

I periodically post on my blog: The Roland Allen Post: Life Matters.
