Hi - my name is Alan. I grew up traditional conservative home. I grew up with tremendous belief in Hashem but was not able to translate that into living as an orthodox man until I was in college. I was born with a physical disability, Cerebral Palsy. I always thank Hashem that I was not born any other way because my disability because however mild it may be in comparison to others, it has made me the humble, goal-oriented person that I am. I will never let my weaknesses get in the way of building and taking care of my family. Ok that's enough serious stuff...I love life. I love to laugh (I am a great audience) and make others laugh. I am a nice, genuine guy. I like to keep myself balanced by being goofy and serious, but obviously not at the same time. I am a certified public accountant and I work in Manhattan doing tax services, but believe me I like to have fun!
