2015 Fellows

Hometown: Seattle, WA

Travel Locations: Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, India, Thailand, Brazil, Bolivia, Venezuela, Colombia

Travel objectives: Alan is compelled to travel on the Bonderman Fellowship for the same reason he is devoted to the practice of social work: he loves human beings. As a practitioner of Buddhist meditation, he is excited to travel to Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, India and Thailand. In Brazil, Bolivia, Venezuela, and Colombia, Alan plans to connect with the cultures and communities that have nurture so many brilliant and revolutionary poets, artists and musicians. Throughout his journey he will meet people whose lives are very different from his in ways that are meaningful, just, and mutually inspiring.
