Alan's experience and contacts in the entertainment industry means that he is often producing and co-ordinating highly complex projects. From staging large scale media events to producing music videos, or creating a bid to develop an Arts Center, he has worked with companies all over the world.
Located in a run-down part of east London, the Truman Brewery was an empty memory to its former glory. With a collaborative vision to house the next generation of protagonists in music, fashion, art and film, Alan and long time UK partner Lee Dicker partnered with Ofer Zeloof and spear-headed the creation of London's most eclectic and innovative cultural centre. This has changed the landscape of London.
Is one of London's most successful venues which was the catalyst for the subsequent development all around Brick Lane. Scheduling live music, spoken word and performance shows of all kinds, it is recognised as a leader in cutting edge content. With excellence as the standard bearer for activity, the Vibe Bar epitomises the ethos of breaking the rules and winning - hosting everyone from Pete Doherty to The UK Labour Party.
Alan was brought in to lead the RFP bid for the pier on the Husdon River in Manhattan, NY. Bringing his in depth knowledge of how to launch a cultural centre, he put together a package with a team that reached the final round of considerations. Working to a deadline under extremely tough circumstances, as a consultant or as part of an entrepreneurial group, Alan's energy and insight brings flair and imagination to even the toughest project.

entertainment, the Academy and citizens, The NY Salon stages regular events - some invite only and some public.
