His interest for design was sparked early on by growing up in the bmx freestyle scene of the mid-80s, being inspired by its bold graphics and imagery. That same curiosity eventually led Alan into the action sports industry, where he bunny-hopped his way to the top as Senior Art Director for Blitz, a skateboard distribution company owned by Per Welinder and Tony Hawk.
In his latest role at ExxonMobil, Alan is the Senior Visual Designer for all things digital on desktop and mobile devices. He is a member of the User Centered Design team, and a Certified Usability Analyst.
Alan’s work has been published in Nice To Meet You Too (Viction:ary) and 1000 More Greetings (Aesthetic Movement). His designs have also been featured on numerous websites including FPO (For Print Only), Elizabeth Ann Designs, Oh So Beautiful Paper, and Web Designer Depot.
Alan currently lives in The Woodlands, Texas with his wife and twin children. In his spare time, he collects Star Wars LEGO sets, and speculates what Apple’s next big product will be.
