Alan Kay is the winner of History Channel’s premier season of ALONE. Alan was born and raised in Georgia, where he spent the majority of his childhood in the forests making shelters with his beloved hatchet. His passion for the woods grew as the years passed, and by the time he was in his 20s, Alan had acquired the skills and mindset necessary to adapt and survive in any environment. In an effort to increase his understanding of edible and medicinal plants, Alan sought out and studied under a number of knowledgeable elders, all of whom helped to round out his growing skill set. He also spent time developing proficiency in the combative arts, including barehanded, stick and knife fighting. In his role as a corrections officer, he’s also been trained in tactical medical care. Alan knows that he’s bound to encounter situations beyond his control and imagination on Vancouver Island. He has left behind a wife and children for this opportunity and is ready to put all of his skills together and push himself to the limits—physically, psychologically and emotionally.

Since the show, Alan has opened his own business, Wildland Studies Group, offering instruction and consultation in wilderness survival, unarmed combatives, edged weapons, firearms, preparedness, and home security. Alan conducts classes and training on location in Blairsville, GA, as well as all over the United States and abroad.
