Craig Allen, President

Craig can’t believe his luck. He gets to do what he loves every day. Uptain Media lets him help other businesses develop digital media strategies that impact customer loyalty as well as the bottom line.

He may have a degree in Business Finance, but his true passion is technology. While teaching computer science, Craig found that his best pupil was himself. When he taught his students about web development, design and Web 2.0 his own enthusiasm for those subjects was boundless.

Craig's passion began after he set up a friend’s website and social media campaign for business purposes. It excited Craig that his friend quickly understood that there was a real difference between having a website and the major impact digital media could have on his business.

Craig is married and has two children. They live in Washington, Missouri, their new hometown. He is an avid sports enthusiast and Apple fan whose favorite quote is from the late founder and CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs. It sums up Craig’s philosophy…

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.
Steve Jobs at Stanford University
