Alan Winter loves to take the beauty of the world and the richness of human connection and process it through imagination and art. Today, he shares with Lisa his story from living on a sausage farm in rural Wisconsin to enrolling in the army, recovering from addiction and alcoholism, and finally regenerating into the creative spirit that was always inside him. Alan traded self-doubt and the feeling of being an outsider for finding his people and stretching his talents in ways he had dreamed of as a child. He also talks about how instrumental the 12-Step Recovery process was, what inspires his music, and why being authentic is the most rockstar thing you can do.
