Director & Executive Producer
Alan founded Parallax Productions in 1988 after eight years of “boot camp” as a nationally syndicated producer for “Evening Magazine” at WBZ-TV, Boston. The recipient of numerous awards including multiple Emmys, Alan has been recognized throughout his career for excellence as a director, producer, and writer. With over 30 years of experience working on broadcast programming, documentaries, commercials, PSAs, music videos, web content and corporate videos, Alan thrives on tackling the next big challenge. He has worked on location all over the US, Africa, India, Israel, The Far East, and Europe. In the late 90’s, Alan was the creator, executive producer and director of the nationally syndicated TV series, "The Wild Wild Web". For three successful seasons, the program was acclaimed as the television guide to the Internet. Distributed by CBS/King World, "The Wild Wild Web" aired in 148 markets across the country. More recently he produced, wrote and directed the award-winning documentary, “Song for New Orleans.” Broadcast nationally and distributed internationally by Hearst Television, the feature-length film chronicles the rebirth of the New Orleans music scene immediately after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. No matter how ambitious or modest the project, Alan’s philosophy is that nothing is “off the rack” at Parallax. Surrounded by an exceptional production team, he continues to push the boundaries to deliver minty fresh creativity to his clients.
Alan has a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and earned a Masters Degree in Broadcasting and Film from Boston University. When not at work, he is an avid road cyclist, jazz drummer, and skier. His favorite productions are in collaboration with his wife Terri…their sons Daniel, Jesse, and Ben. His little black dog named Bear is really cute but neurotic. Good thing he has that psych degree.
