Allen Rowland

Allen Rowland has over 18 years of experience in web and software development and holds a B.A. in Computer Science, 3D Animation and Game Development from Eastern Washington University. From freelancing to working for agencies, Allen has led teams, large and small, to develop all shapes and sizes of web and software related projects. In 2013, frustrated with how the industry separated the developer from clients and bloated development costs, Allen set out to improve upon the client/developer relationship. Allen started Bluefire Interactive with the goal to keep the developer and client in contact from start to finish of each project. This developer on-demand approach has shown tremendous results.
