He has played and coached hockey for 17 years and in as many States & Providences, learning to skate in California and playing in the Northwest and Midwest before making Charlotte home.

Alan is a licensed Wealth Advisor Associate at Carolina Planning Consultants in Concord, NC; where he assists families and business owners with financial planning and securities investments. He hold as Bachelors of Science from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
Alan spent three years in Chicago watching the world class Blackhawks organization lose All-Star players, alienate fans and fire good coaches to become perennial losers in the NHL. The ‘Hawks since hired Hall of Famer Scotty Bowman as a team advisor and won the Stanley Cup in 2010. From this Alan learned all he needs to succeed: great goal tending can mask a lot of mistakes, field the most athletic team on the ice, reward the players who go to the corners for the puck and recognize when someone can do your job better than you, and hire them.
