Name: Allen Galloway

What is your job at ITS?

I'm an IT Technician. I mainly do hardware repairs on Desktops, Laptops, Printers, Servers, etc... I have many other responsibilities as well, work on the recycling program, prep computers for Ethiopia, work on the physical install of lab equipment, server upgrades, etc. I've got a pretty broad set of responsibilities. Also I smash computers.

Allen in his 'green screen green' officeIf your life was a musical, what song would you have as the opening number?

That's a tough one. I think 'Time', by Pink Floyd would be a good opener for me. I've always loved that song, and like the message in it.

What's the funniest thing that's ever happened on set for one of the films you've been involved in?

So many stories... I guess I like this one the best, although a little embarrassing for me. On the set of Déliverance, I was the production equipment truck driver, as well as first assistant camera. On one of my trips in the woods in Memramcook, I hit a clothesline with the top of the truck and knocked the pole down and snapped the line, all in front of the crew, who by the time I got out to see the damage were all rolling with laughter. I got teased pretty bad about that one after that.

If you had to give the paint colour on your office wall a name, what would it be?

Green screen green. I've had a name for it for a long time!

In your opinion, what makes the perfect ice cream sundae?

The more chocolate, the better the sundae. Also that strawberry sauce. So, chocolate ice cream, with chocolate sauce, and strawberry sauce. Mmmmm

If you could be a character from the TV show The Big Bang Theory, who would you be and why?

This is the question that gave me the hardest time. But after thinking about it, definitely Raj. I can be cripplingly shy, and definitely awkward by times.
