Time-savvy and inspired by collaboration, Alan revels in the art of project management, making every moment count to deliver websites that are on schedule, within budget, and ready to meet client goals.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
I was once told that time is the world’s greatest resource. This didn’t really hit me until I was a bit older and had a daughter. Perhaps I became a project manager to manage time…
If you had to switch AW teams for one week, which department would you work in?
I have a huge respect for everyone’s skill set at the agency. That said, I would work in the studio on the creative team. I have always been fascinated by design and am a very visual person.
What do you like about working at an agency?
I love the camaraderie you build with people. You are always learning from your peers, and at an agency, there is such a wide array of unique people.
What’s your favorite part of being a senior website project director?
There are two aspects I love as a project director. One part is being able to work directly with different departments. The second is creating timelines and staff plans. I enjoy planning ahead and mapping out projects.
What inspires you?
My daughter, Claire, has become my inspiration both professionally and personally. She just turned five, and her perspective on things is eye-opening. It is such an amazing feeling to be able to see things through her eyes. I want to be a better person every day for her and my wife.
What real or fictional person would you go on a road trip with?
I would take a trip with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. I have been a huge fan of his since his early days in the WWE. He has come a long way in entertainment and in building a brand. I am sure he has a ton of good stories to tell!
