As a Dale Carnegie trained public speaker, Alan has provided tailored learning experiences to corporations (Banc One, Jefferson Pilot Communications), at conventions and meetings (BSDcon, InfraGard, HTCIA), and as part of his job with Berkeley Software Design.

During the NSF funded rollout of Internet access to higher education, Alan assisted in the deployment of “high speed” (56k!) network access to all 2 and 4 year degree granting, publicly funded colleges and universities in North Carolina. Later, as a member of the technical staff of Berkeley Software Design, he provided training and support for the BSD/OS and FreeBSD operating systems.

The training includes a 5-day DNS and BIND class, a 3-day DNSSEC workshop and a 2-day ISC DHCP course. These classes and workshops have been delivered across the globe to private corporations, such as Telstra, Cloudshield and Neustar and publicly to a vast array of system administrators and network operators.

Serving as a volunteer firefighter for over 21 years, Alan became an American Red Cross Disaster Services volunteer following hurricane Katrina. He is also a trainer for the FEMA Community Emergency Response Team, specializing in CERT response to acts of terrorism.
