Shaped Out of Brokenness
Featuring Guest Speaker: Allen McClinton, Program Manager, Tesla
We had a great time hosting Allen McClinton with moderators Michael Griego and Ana Gonzalez of Connect Silicon Valley.
Allen is an ex-Marine working today as a Program Manager for Tesla here in the Silicon Valley. Raised as a preacher’s kid in the midst of a rampant drug community in South Beach, Florida, Allen suffered through his own brokenness as he worked his way into the high-tech business world and now settling into a challenging life that balances work, family, and a prioritized Christian faith.
Watch the recording of Allen’s interview with Mike and Ana as they discuss his personal journey and the active role and impact of key people in his life and the impact of his faith.
