During his 5 year tenure at the Guardian, Alan became a mainstay within Toronto’s entertainment industry, volunteering for a number of event/act management roles. This experience has proven to be invaluable in working with his current clients because he understands the demands of the industry and how it operates, in particular, the need to meet very short time lines.
