Jimmy Allen obtained a Bachelor (BFA) Degree in Theatre with a minor in Dance from FIU in 2002.
While studying at FIU, he pursued a minor in Dance in addition to his Theatre classes, which helped him secure work performing on a number of cruise ships sailing out of Miami. After a few years he moved to New York, where he took to professional acting.

He has played principal roles in several films, including “The Making of Tobi”, “On the Park”, “Clowning Around”, “Musashi Fight”, “Bimo’s Rebellion” (title role), “Blood Brothers”, “The Escapist”, and “Rachel’s Rubick’s Cube”.
