Alan split his childhood between Chattanooga, TN and Bedford, TX. He attended the United States Naval Academy and studied Electrical and Computer Engineering. He graduated with honors in 2008 and commissioned as a submarine officer.
While in the submarine force, Alan did two Western Pacific deployments and a Persian Gulf deployment. His ship was involved in a collision at sea in the western approaches to the Straits of Hormuz. Alan took over the revitalizing the operations department post-collision and managed sixty men for the remainder of his tour.
He then went to upstate New York to teach the next generation of Sailors nuclear power. He managed between 120 and 600 sailors and civilians performing all training, operations, and maintenance on a critical land based reactor.
While in New York, Alan co-founded a SaaS company providing logistics services to the fracking industry. The backend software automated dispatch, tracking, invoicing, and safety management for carriers and well completion companies. He sold this company to a strategic buyer in December 2017.
After separating from the Navy, Alan attended Harvard Business School and encountered the idea of entrepreneurship through acquisition. He is now seeking a business to run in the Southeastern US or Texas.
