Alan has spent the majority of the past 40 years focused on river basin management; a challenge that involves a convergence of relationships- human, engineering, and science- with technology, policy, regulation, and communication. Alan believes that above all, human relationships and trust drive the ability to accomplish a shared goal.
One of Alan’s hobby is refereeing football. Being a sports official requires important life skills, which he imparts when mentoring young professionals. His motto: “At the end of the journey, it’s not what you accomplish; it’s what you leave behind.”
