What have you been up to since Magee?

Went to Art Center College of Design in LA, graduated in 1970 with a BS in Transportation Design. Lived in Detroit and was an automotive designer until 1973. Then moved to Seattle and designed aircraft interiors for the Boeing Company until 1984. Got rained out and moved to San Diego area (Poway) in 1984 and started Alan Berry Design in 1987. Still working with my wife in that capacity and we moved to the coast (Oceanside, CA) about two years ago. Loving life and we are both trying to stay relative.

Best/worst/most memorable times at Magee

Best: Before school and after school. no pleasure in between.

Worst: Flunking French 91 twice, and my Mom teaching that subject.

Memorable: All the cool hot rods kids drove. 40 Fords rock!!

How would you rate your time at Magee?

I was happy to move on

What are you planning for the next 50 years?

Slowing down, going faster (vintage racing) semi-retiring and traveling to all the places I have put off going to. Watching grandkids grow up, spoiling them but always having a place in their lives.

Can't make the get together in Vancouver for Ted. I will simply post he was a fun good guy when I was a student at Magee. He always was interesting to talk to and made me laugh. Ted had a great outlook on life and I pray he had a good one. God bless his family. Alan

Happy 39th Birthday Ted! Will be in Vancouver for a week for a family reunion in mid June. Give me your phone number and I'll call you when I'm in town. We have to work on locating John Foote.
