davidDavid Allen was born in Bridgewater and raised in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. When he graduated grade 12 at Centre Consolidated School in 1965, he left home to attend Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia.

Upon graduating David then went back home to work with Lunenburg Foundry & Engineering Limited (LIFE). Where he continues to work today as the Vice-president and one of the Directors of the company. In 1979 he achieved his Professional Engineering status and has since been a valued employee of LIFE overseeing countless refits and projects. David was instrumental in ensuring that LIFE received it's ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System registration and continues to ensure that the company complies with ISO standards.
