Early Life

"Allen was born at the East General Hospital in East York, Ontario. East York is a suburb of Toronto. He lived in the eastern Toronto suburb of Scarborough, attending the University of Toronto; moving to Vancouver, BC in November, 1970. During his long entrepreneurial career, Allen Achilles, started, managed and sold numerous business.

In his leisure time he found the time to be the founding chairman of the British Columbia chapter of the Canadian Sanitation Standards Association, Chairman of the Gastown Historical Area Coordinating Committee as well as President of TEAM during the early 1980s. He was also active in scouting throughout his youth and adulthood, acting as a Beaver leader, Cub Akela and Boy Scout Troop leader. As a baseball coach he coached both boys and girls softball teams to several championships over a 15 year span."

Career

"In 1999 his attention was drawn to the internet and the online safety and protection of children and teens. It was the result of research on a school project for thermal energy with his then, 12 year old daughter. He felt strongly about the need for a safe place on the web for kids, specifically tweens, to do the things they wanted to do without being subjected to inappropriate content. This concern gave rise to the concept of kidzworld.com.

After 20 months of hard work by a dedicated team of early internet adopters Kidzworld was launched on February 16, 2001.[1] Today the site provides kids with a safe and monitored environment,[2] and is the largest privately owned kids website in the world."
