Alan Goodman received his Bachelor’s of Arts in communications from The Ohio State University. Upon graduation Alan worked in his father’s family business before starting his own eBay business, becoming one of eBay’s top 500 sellers with over 35,000+ happy customers and reaching Platinum PowerSeller status before moving on to other online ventures. 

Always an avid music fan but without any formal music education, when the time was right for his next transition Alan enrolled in the San Diego Mesa College Music Program.  Since his enrollment he has completed the Music Theory & Ear Training program, Recording Arts, and is currently in the Applied Music Program furthering his musical studies on guitar as a student of Bob Boss. He has performed in the San Diego Mesa College Concert Jazz Band and the San Diego Mesa College Jazz Ensemble.

In addition to his studies, Alan was the primary tutor for the Music Department. He assists in the Music Department’s office helping to run things smoothly. As a former student, he genuinely understands the needs of the other students, and with his business and administrative experience as well as his problem-solving attitude he enthusiastically enjoys enhancing the musical lives of those around him.
