Allen moved to Fort McMurray in 1993 with his family and purchased Campbell’s Music, where he was able to combine his business administration background and career as a professional jazz musician to create a successful and thriving business. Allen began transitioning from business to community leader when he was nominated to a position on the board of Fort McMurray’s Chamber of Commerce. He served two terms as president.

In 2007, Allen was elected to city council, serving two terms as a councillor.

Business leader, community leader and now provincial elected representative, he continues to serve Fort McMurray-Wood Buffalo, the community he calls home.

On July 16, 2013, Allen resigned from the Progressive Conservative caucus after his involvement in a prostitution sting operation in Minnesota which resulted in his arrest.

On July 7, 2014 at the annual Calgary Stampede meeting the PC caucus voted in a closed ballot to invite Allen back into the PC caucus.

In the 2015 election, Allen was defeated by Wildrose candidate Tany Yao.
