Born at a very early age in Manchester, England, the student was the first born son of four to working class parents. Alan was schooled and raised in Whyalla, South Australia to where he was migrated at the age of eight. Some forty years later he moved to the Philippines and settled in the town of Banga in the province of Aklan. He enjoys among other things, drinking beer, floating in the ocean, watching crowds, walking and the challenge of learning new languages for coding and conversing.
