Allen Pieper. Maybe the most intellectual thinker I know? Yeah, probably so. This guy speaks his mind and speaks it well. He also has the ability to be the kindest and warmest soul there is. I can think on many occasions when Allen has given me the most sincere, direct compliments. That's pretty rare I feel. He's also one of the most talented designers/developers I had the pleasure of working with. You can see some of his excellent work, here. Basically a pretty bad ass human and I'm pretty lucky to have him as a friend.
