Initially, Alan wanted to be a materials engineer - but instead, he pursued art. As an artist, he experimented with painting, multimedia, and drawing, but was drawn back time and again to sculpture. Through his training in sculpture, Alan learned the secrets of metal casting in bronze, silver and gold leading him to create functional art. Leading him into knife-making.
