Early and personal life
Allman’s father was in the Air Force during his early childhood, and as a result, he and his family relocated often. They eventually settled on a farm in Tennessee when Allman was 12. Allman comments, “I would always dream about getting away from the farm. I didn’t want to work in a sewing factory and do the whole family and kids thing.”
During his time at Tusculum, Allman came out to his family when he was 22. “It was almost life and death for me. I felt very isolated, alone, and empty. Like anyone who feels those feelings you start thinking the unthinkable,” he said in an interview with The Advocate. Following college graduation, Allman’s first job was in the music business doing merchandise for a variety of touring artists. He later worked with WME talent agency in Nashville before leaving his position to pursue a career as an actor.
Director Matt Riddlehoover has worked with Allman on numerous films, including West Hollywood Motel and Scenes from a Gay Marriage. Allman reprising his role as "Joe" in the sequel, More Scenes from a Gay Marriage. In 2014, Allman co-starred in the feature film Les Wolf and King Simon.
