Marc’s keen eye for detail is evident in his love for die-cast aircraft and his invaluable photo and infographic contributions to AUP. When he’s not showcasing his editing wizardry, he’s defending goals as a football team’s goalkeeping coach or competing athletically for his school.

A melody of passions defines Ira. While his heart beats for Jpop and the art of composing, he is equally engrossed in virtual aviation simulations and dreams of one day piloting an aircraft. His love for manga and Japanese aviation publications adds to his multifaceted persona.
