A user-interface designer for a medical health care management application, he has always dreamed of developing mobile applications that truly add value to individuals’ lives. Inspiring Now is a manifestation of his efforts to convey messages of optimism and encouragement on a personal basis. Allen said: “Our company would like the public to have a sense of peace with our messages and become better people not only in their lives, but in the lives of others around them. We would like this positivity to spread throughout the world creating a better environment for all those who are seeking balance in chaos.”
