Alan is well-known and active in the Aspen and Pitkin County business and social communities and is a long-standing board member of Aspen’s Grassroots Television, where he was President of the Board of Directors for many years. Alan has also advised the Pitkin County Commissioners by serving on the Pitkin County Translator System Board which manages a series of communications towers in remote Pitkin County purposed on serving the emergency, information and entertainment needs of residents in the rural and remote areas of Pitkin County.
In his spare time Alan continues his 40+ year commitment to rock and roll guitar and continues his long career as a professional electric guitarist with over 30 years of gigging experience. He continues this dream with the band Jes Grew who regularly play in venues in Aspen, Carbondale, Pitkin County, Garfield County and Eagle County. Alan is an avid fly fisherman who has traveled extensively in pursuit of those wily fish. In addition to being a fly fisherman, Alan also enjoys skeet and target shooting at local ranges. Alan is a long-term board member on the Aspen Men’s Golf Association which unfortunately has not improved his chipping game.
In addition to lending time and participating in community activities, Alan and Jeff contribute financially to several local organizations and institutions. These include the Aspen High School Athletics Department, Aspen Grass Roots TV, and the Aspen Ruggerfest as well as being a former supporting sponsor of the Stirling Cup Classic Golf Tournament- a fundraiser for the Aspen Leafs hockey organization here in Aspen, Colorado.
