Alan Chao

Director of Digital

Alan brings web design thinking to life.

He has crafted dozens of websites for Carter Hales clients, including Vantage Airport Group, LaGuardia Airport, Lynden Pindling International Airport, and JOEY Restaurants.

Alan’s work is characterized by engaging elements that make each site unique, and by simplified user interfaces that allow clients to easily update their content.

He began creating websites and other general mayhem at age ten and has been exploring and experimenting ever since. He’s an avid gamer living in a simulated galaxy, transmitting UI ideas from gaming to the branding environment.

Alan predicts that virtual reality, alternate reality, and holograms will soon become pretty usual for most of us. Sometimes — for no apparent reason and to our abject confusion — he shouts from under his premium headphones, “ONE DAY WEBSITES WILL BE SOMETHING PHYSICAL!!!”

Alan doesn’t sleep much.
