The Uncommon Life

Uncommon Personalities: Meet Bradley Allen

November 4, 2013

Bradley Allen | UncommonGoods

Bradley Allen, UncommonGoods Software Developer
My hometown is…
Fort Worth, TX

My favorite process in the UncommonGoods warehouse is…
Training! I love sharing knowledge.

I’m inspired by…
Creativity, authenticity, and integrity. People who do a lot with a little.

My favorite interaction with a UG team member has been…
Too many to choose from.

An uncommon fact about me…
When I was moving from Fort Worth to New York, I stopped to visit a friend in Nashville on the way, and picked up a day of work on the set of a country music video.

When I’m not working, I’m probably…
Wandering New York City with one of my film cameras. I shoot 35mm black and whites mostly, but my Polaroid cameras get a lot of use as well. [Check out some of the photos here.]

The word that best describes me…
Ambivalent. Again, there are so many good choices, how do I choose just one?

Working at UncommonGoods I’ve learned…
I love code! I’ve picked up SQL and VBA on the job here, and I’m teaching myself Ruby at home.

Would you rather… get front row seats to see your favorite comedian perform all new material OR get to eat for free at your favorite restaurant for a month?
Definitely my favorite comedian. The bigger question is: Am I getting tickets to see Louis CK or Dave Chappelle? See “I’m inspired by…” . They’re both creative, authentic people with integrity.
