He went on the Zambia trip which greatly touched him. “Going on the mission trip reminded me of why I got into the news business. I wanted to help people,” says Alan. “Most of my work stems from that idea … whether it be an investigation to help a group of people and point out an injustice or just helping one person at a time. That’s what I wanted to do. When I saw the great work Entheos was doing, I could not pass up this opportunity to try to make a difference.” Alan has a Bachelor of Arts from Penn State University in Mass Communications and a Master’s Degree in Broadcast Journalism from New York University.
