Hi, I'm Alan.

I'm currently an Engineering Manager at Zendesk, having left a similar position at Enova in 2017. Most of my recent contributions are either work product or behind the VPN anyway. You can see some of my recent side projects on Github or continue for some of my older work.

From 2008-2010, I ran the web department at the Center for Inquiry. I've done most of my recent work as a Django developer with Manifest Digital (opinions expressed by me here or elsewhere on the interent, blah blah blah, do not necessarily represent my past or present employers, clients, etc.).

I'm chiefly a people manager for front-end leaning full-stack teams in the last few years. I built this site about ten years ago in my Django days when jQuery was becoming the big thing.
