Alan Reese was born and raised in the Fairfax County area of Northern Virginia. The son of a lawyer and local politician, Alan was exposed to all types of people and tried to find humor in all of them.
After graduating from Oakton High School, Alan spent a year attending Flagler College, in St. Augustine, Florida before transferring back to Northern Virginia. He completed his education and graduated from George Mason University.
His mailing address indicates that he resides, with his wife and daughter, in Oak Hill, Virginia…though indications are strong that he lives on the mythical Caribbean island of Birubegja.
