Entrepreneur Leadership Series Speaker – February 8, 2017


Alan began using marijuana and other drugs in his early teens which began a thirteen-year downward spiral of multiple arrests, lost marriages, lost careers, and eventually homelessness. Facing many years in prison, Alan says he was rescued by an empathetic judge who allowed him to go to Delancey Street instead of prison. While there, Alan worked in corporate development, finance, retail sales, and eventually found his niche in community relations. Alan has spoken throughout New Mexico and southern California enthusiastically advocating for the type of therapeutic community he now helps foster.
