With A Little Help From His Friend, Paul McCartney

Working long hours to complete his work for the Intel Science Talent Search,

Alan probably needed “Eight Days A Week.” But he persevered with just seven and became a finalist in the competition, thanks to a little help from his parents and Paul McCartney. The musician and fellow vegetarian was so impressed with Alan and his animal-friendly scientist ways that he took the time to write him this letter. It made all of those endless days spent in the lab worth it. (And it made all of us jealous!)

Enough song references for you? Okay, okay…I’ll Let It Be.

You can buy our love, Paul. (The_Admiralty)
All you need is Paul.

Tobey List

    As a co-producer on “Secret Life,” Tobey is able to combine two of her favorite things—film and science! She is delighted to finally redeem herself in the eyes of her high-school science teachers, all of whom thought she was destined for a career in science until she shocked and alienated them all and chose….film. After receiving a degree in Journalism and French from UNC—Chapel Hill, Tobey worked for several years at PBS, where she gained a love for documentary. She then threw all logic to the wind and returned to school, earning her MFA in Film from Columbia University. During her studies, she produced numerous award-winning short films and associate-produced the feature documentary “No Impact Man.” Tobey is a writer and producer for both documentary and narrative film.
