The Oakville, ON native joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 2009 as a Naval Combat Information Operator. Since joining, Master Seaman Allen has sailed on all East Coast Maritime Coastal Defence Vessels, and has also been the recipient of the Operational Service Medal for his service during Op Caribbe.

Master Seaman Allen is one of forty-five crew members on board HMCS Goose Bay. Their mission during the Great Lakes deployment is focused on community outreach and educating local communities about the Royal Canadian Navy, especially in areas not traditionally visited by ships.

Master Seaman Allen now resides in Halifax, NS, though he often returns to visit his family in Oakville.
