Alan Friedman

I'm currently a Senior Software Engineer at The Weather Channel where I build products for emerging platforms and markets.

Before working in the tech, I was a photojournalist and wedding/portrait photographer. Before doing that I was a television producer at GPB. Before that I was tinkering with code, so I guess it all makes sense in the end.

My passion is building new things and learning along the way. In addition to tech projects, I've also built small eCommerce businesses in the home goods and crafts spaces.
