About Alan Vitello

Alan Vitello is a 1986 graduate of Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colo.

For the past 30 years, he has pursued two very different and parallel career paths. On one path, he has been an award-winning freelance editorial cartoonist whose work has appeared in newspapers throughout Colorado and in 18 consecutive editions of The Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year. Simultaneously (before retiring, in December, 2016), Alan worked in various positions at a large telecommunications company.

He is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in communications at Colorado State University-Global Campus as he transitions toward the second (or possibly the third) professional phase of his life.

For the past 28 years, he has been married to one of most patient, kind and compassionate people who has ever walked the Earth.
