Making art. Reality.

Our mission is to support, promote and enhance Marching Arts activities and the positive life skills the Marching Arts teach students.

Alan Mueggenborg started FLASH Visual Media in 2014.

Before starting FLASH Alan worked more than 30 years in the Marching and Pageantry Arts.  Alan’s deep and broad experience includes performer, instructor, visual designer, director, manager, visual coordinator, drill designer, clinician and adjudicator for some of the largest and most successful competitive Marching Arts programs and competitions in the United States.  Alan’s Marching Arts programs won multiple state, regional and national championship titles during his competitive career.

Alan previously served on the boards of Winter Guard International, Drum Corp International, Texas Color Guard Circuit and the Winter Guard & Percussion Circuit of Oklahoma.

Alan knows first-hand the positive impact and essential life skills Marching Arts activities instill in students: confidence, creativity, expression, competition, team work, camaraderie, work ethic, discipline, dedication, resilience, multi-tasking, time management, fitness, etc.

Alan created FLASH Visual Media to support, promote and enhance Marching Arts activities and all the life skills they teach students.
