Hi, this is Alan. I was born and raised in Walnut Creek, CA and recently graduated from MIT with a Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering. Right now I'm in Los Angeles pursuing a Master's in Astronautical Engineering at USC.

I'm also a jazz trumpet player, composer, and arranger. I've been playing for 13 years and have performed all over the US, Europe, and the Caribbean.

I'm always excited about what's next; whether it's the next Mars rover, the next Ambrose Akinmusire album, or the next World of Warcraft content patch. I'm eager to contribute my skills to break new ground, on Earth or elsewhere!
