  • Alumnus, Visible Language Workshop

 MS 1993
Enterprise Architect

Since graduating from the Media Lab, Alan has spent 25+ years working in the online publishing industry, building tools for designer to create and distribute their content.

How did your experience at the Lab influence your next step?

It made me realize that Art & Science / Design & Technology have always been one thing; that one can't exist without the other.

MIT is a "candy store".  Sample everything.  Then do it again.  Find what you love and the people who share your interest.  Then just do.  Try, fail, try again, fail again, succeed and then look back and realized how much you've already accomplished and that you are now the one that needs to encourage others to do the same.
