While there, Allan, continued in music distribution as a partner in an Israeli company. In 1998, the family moved back stateside so Tara could pursue studies in Hotel Management in Las Vegas where Allan challenged himself with a new career, becoming owner of a small business commercial printing company, where his mid-western honesty and strong work ethic continues to inspire respect and loyalty.
