The Frogman's Personal Stuff


My name is Steve Allen.  Although my professional resume is available for the asking, I thought that I'd provide a brief overview.  I have a varied background starting off with my college career at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, CA graduating in 1985.  My first real job was at Northern Telecom in Santa Clara as a Manufacturing Engineer.  I then taught Industrial Technology at the Jr and Sr High levels, then opened my restoration shop (Progressive Auto Art) where I built street rods and restored classic cars and bikes.  I started building commercial websites on the side in '97 and still maintain some today.  

After selling my shop in early '99, I  took some time off from reality for a year and built some more websites, as well as working on a few project cars and bikes.  I was a guest teacher many times at several of the local schools.  I also took on an odd assortment of jobs including being hired to repossess vehicles, misc repairs to street rods and vintage motorcycles and tutoring children.  After getting married and moving up to the SF Bay Area, I got a job teaching woodworking and mechanical drawing.  Not wanting to get completely out of the restoration business, I started and began selling parts for vintage Ducati motorcycles.  I have been active to promote and organize various Italian motorcycle shows and do odd restoration jobs as needed.

Anyways, here are some personal bits of info and some pictures of me, my wife and my family.
