Alan is originally from outside Seattle, and still harbors poorly hidden ambitions to return to that part of the world one day. Alan attended Pomona College, majoring in economics, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude. He received a number of awards for his economics work, including the Robert Day Scholarship and the Morris Pendleton Prize. After graduating, he went to work for the Boston Consulting Group for nearly three years, where he was promoted to the post-MBA role. He next spent time working for the City of New York and a bike-sharing company, where he was promoted to Chief of Staff to the CEO. Today, Alan studies at Yale Law School.
Alan worked as an editor for his undergraduate student newspaper, and provided mentorship to more junior consultants during the latter portion of his time at BCG. He has also worked with peers and fellow students in preparing for oral argument and presentation through Model United Nations in undergrad, and for moot court competitions in law school. Alan received a 770 on the GMAT and a 172 on the LSAT and he loves helping students boost their scores.
In his free time, you can find Alan cycling, reading history, playing soccer, or beating his friends at Settlers of Catan. For those interested in long cycling trips, he suggests trying out the route from Vancouver, Canada to Oakland CA.
