Alan has loved space since his mom taught him about constellations at the tender age of five. Since then, he has always loved learning about stars, planets, and black holes. His scientific knowledge of space is limited to a few books he’s read and a few college courses on Astronomy. He went to undergrad at Boston University where he studied English Literature, Classical Civilizations, and Philosophy. He immediately then went on to complete law school in two years at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles. His primary legal interests are Criminal Procedure, Constitutional Law, Copyright, and the burgeoning Space Law field.
