About Us

Allan developed his interest in theater and film in high school, while working on shows and plays.  In college he was the photography editor of the school newspaper, and after college became involved in the technical workings of a local community theater.  By the age of 30, Allan had established himself as a successful gaffer in the Philadelphia area film community and his success quickly grew to include the development of a lighting and grip equipment rental buisness.

In 1998, Allan purchased his first whisper quiet, computer controlled, movie quality generator, and his generator rental business has continued to grow ever since.  The generator rental business rapidly expanded into the special event arena and today The Gaffer Baron proudly supplies well maintained, high quality equipment to his film, video and special event clients.

While growing The Gaffer Baron, Ltd., Allan volunteered for 8 years in the drama programs of Haverford Middle School, Haveford High School, and Woodlynde School and, later, at the Narberth Community Theatre.
