I started out as a grocery clerk at Fareway in Waverly and later opened the new Cedar Falls store in 1997. Nabisco (later Kraft Foods) brought me to the Des Moines metro when I took a sales job with them in 2002. After that, I managed a sales and marketing company contracted by the Des Moines Register which brings me to today where I proudly work for Big Green Umbrella Media and sell for The Iowa Living Magazines.
I enjoy playing and watching baseball. This year will be my sixth season playing in the Mid-Iowa Baseball League (2015 All-Star), and I am the biggest Atlanta Braves fan on this side of the Mississippi.
My wife, Heidi is a registered dietitian at MercyOne, and our son, Emerson attends second grade.

Alan has a diversified background in business development and management, politics, law and sales that make him a unique member of the Urbandale Chamber of Commerce.
I grew up in Dayton Ohio, went to college in Wisconsin, and moved to Des Moines in 2011. I have a 3 year old son named Jaxson and 5 year old daughter named Kaitlyn. In my spare time I love spending time with my kids or riding my Harley everywhere. I have worked a lot of jobs including landscaping, library, maintenance, industrial food batching, road construction, as well as overseas volunteer work. Before banking I was a salesman for 6 years. I've sold residential HVAC, life insurance, and furniture. Now I manage the retail side of the bank inside the Urbandale Hy-Vee. I spend a good portion of my time developing relationships with local business in order to be an asset to their financial needs; whether its deposits, LOCs, merchant capture, ACH, or any other business banking need, I love to help direct in any way I can.
I moved to Urbandale in 2011 and have been a proud member & Connector of the Chamber ever since. I received my real estate license in 2006 and have been honored to help many members & their families with their real estate needs over the years. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking with my husband & our black lab, cooking, gardening & spending time with family.
I offer a no-pressure, no-obligation approach in my consulting & sales. I look forward to the opportunity to help you, or a loved one, get moving in the right direction!

I am an Iowa native who was born and raised in Des Moines and a proud graduate of East High School! Real estate has always been a dream of mine so I earned my license in 2011 and enjoyed serving clients until 2014. Since then I have been on the mortgage/finance side of the business and received my loan originator license in the fall of 2017. I have learned so much about the financing and what goes on behind the scenes during a real estate transaction. I am so excited to be back at real estate and know that the knowledge I have gained will be a great asset to serve my clients and make sure their transaction is as worry free as possible! I look forward to teaming up with you and helping make your dreams come true! I currently reside in Urbandale with my two daughters, Lucy and Gwen. If I am not working, I am with them doing things around town, going to the movies, spending time with family and baking yummy desserts!
