Our Thoughts

Team Spotlight: Alan Ness

The latest installment in our regular Q&A spotlight session where we sit down with members of the FJY team to find out a little bit more about what exactly they do here and what makes them tick. 

This Month: Alan Ness

What is the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery?

Do investments count?  The advisor in me starts going through a practical checklist to make sure I’m being prudent.  Practicality out the window…a house in the Caribbean and a sailboat.

What would be your walk-up song if you were a professional baseball player?

No question…TNT by AC/DC.  Takes me back to the days in the high school baseball weight room.  Gets me pumped every time. 

What’s a movie that you can practically quote from start to finish?

That’s a tough one, because there are several.  The Princess Bride is a household favorite, and I have a soft spot for Andre the Giant.  “Anybody want a peanut?”

When you were a little kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be an Architect and have always been fascinated by architecture.  To the point that as a kid I would read magazines with house plans and blueprints instead of comic books.  I would even design my own homes and floor plans.
