Alan attended UCLA as a Performance major in trumpet and after graduation sang over 20 pre-records for Paramount’s ‘Solid Gold’ TV show. He sang on the original ‘Tron’ motion picture score and on Dan Fogelberg’s ‘The Innocent Age’ album. Following ‘Solid Gold’, Alan was hired as the Music Coordinator for the spin-off show, ‘Solid Gold Hits’. He also co-wrote the theme song for another Paramount show, ‘Madame’s Place. 

In those days, Alan recorded rising Smooth Jazz artists, Ken Navarro and Dave Koz on his demos. As a singer-songwriter, Alan was signed to a development deal with Interscope Records with multi-platinum producer, Bob Ezrin.  

 Alan’s other TV credits include featured trumpet on the end title for the film ‘Phantom Punch’, TV shows ‘Beverly Hills 90210’, and animated series ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Jumanji’. He has composed music cues for ‘Courthouse’, ‘Dark Skies’, ‘When Secrets Kill’ and the opening title for the Lifetime movie ‘Deadly Honeymoon’. 

Alan has lived in Solvang, California, for the last few years, raising his family of four children, one of whom just graduated from Juilliard. He has played trumpet on and produced high quality local concerts with Doc Severinsen, Jimmy Messina and Cheryl Ladd. For two years in a row Alan received the Hawaiian Music Award for pop album of the year with his group, ‘Hana & Satchwell’.
