Hi, I'm Alan.
I'm currently the Director of Digital Strategy That's a cross between a scrappy product manager & a technical creative director. at iostudio, a digital agency that creates enterprise-level applications for clients that include the National Guard and the US Chamber of Commerce.
We turn big ideas into a specific set of features & process flows. To everyone else it looks like sticky notes & whiteboard scribbles but to us it looks like some Ocean's Eleven master plan.
In middle school, my best friend and I drew and sold comics. It was my first startup. There was a thrill to fitting a narrative into a designed space that was only matched by Print Day. That's the day of the month we shipped product.
Curiousity & sheer stubborness led me into web development. But I truly love working with people so I found myself moving closer to the start of the product lifecycle, where the ideas See Cooper's Pair Design emerge from collaboration.
