If you’ve ever thought about packing up your life and moving with just your dog and your car across the country, get some tips from Alan. Now residing in Colorado, you’ll find him on his snowboard or hiking with his best man, Zeus.


Where is your hometown? 

Miami, Florida


Where do you currently reside?

Vail, Colorado

Alan at Beaver Creek

What are your favorite ways to spend time outside?

Summer- hiking, hanging in my hammock, or out with my dog Zeus

Winter- snowboarding

Year-round, photography is one of my favorite things to do.


What is your most beloved piece of Turtle Fur gear?

Turtle Tube. It definitely is an all-around product for me. Whether it's cold, windy, or absolutely dumping snow, it keeps my face and neck nice and warm. I use it when I’m cleaning the snow off my car, walking my dog, or going snowboarding. 


What Turtle Fur product comes with you on every adventure, and why?

Tube and a beanie. Both keep me toasty warm on those cold, brutal days.

What is your most cherished outdoor memory? 

Hiking 12 miles up to a lake with my dog that had leg surgery just 8 months prior.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be, and why? 

Haven’t done any traveling out of the States. But if I had to choose, it would be to go to all the National Parks in the US.


What is your day job?

Overnight security at the Four Seasons


Alan in the mountainsWhat personal accomplishment are you most proud of?

Moving from Miami to Colorado with just my dog and what I could fit in my car. Started life all over from scratch at the age of 27.

Two truths and a lie:

I was a boy scout for 10 years.

I’ve been to all Vail Resort locations.

I’m a video game nerd.
