About Alan Tenenbaum W.

(below, in English)

Alan Tenenbaum nació en la Ciudad de Guatemala en la tarde del 22 de abril de 1982. Desde muy temprana edad, sus tres pasiones han sido la música, los deportes y viajar, sumergiéndose en las distintas culturas para aprender de la vida. Al terminar sus estudios secundarios, empacó su mochila y se dirigió a Israel, donde vivió en un kibutz durante seis meses, bajando pencas de banano de las palmeras y conviviendo con gente de todo el mundo.

Tuvo la grandiosa oportunidad de vivir cuatro años en la hermosa ciudad de Boulder, donde saco su título en Mercadeo de la Universidad de Colorado. Al graduarse regresó a su país natal donde trabajó por años en la industria de la publicidad y el mercadeo.

Fue en otra tarde, pero esta vez la del 21 de junio del 2008, en que Alan Tenenbaum volvió a nacer. Un misterioso clavado a una piscina lo dejó inconsciente debajo del agua. Afortunadamente, sus familiares y amigos que lo acompañaban lograron percatarse de la situación y lo sacaron justo a tiempo, antes que se ahogara. Sin embargo, los restos de dos de sus cervicales impactaron su médula, dejándolo cuadripléjico a sus veintiséis años.

Siguieron unos años muy difíciles, tanto para él como para su familia y amigos, pero con actitud positiva, paciencia y mucho trabajo, lograron acostumbrarse a esa nueva vida. Alan Tenenbaum sigue luchando día a día por buscar independencia y regresar a hacer todo lo que le apasiona.

A raíz de unas notas que escribió en Facebook, muchos le sugirieron escribir un libro, cosa que jamás le había pasado por la mente. Una noche de insomnio surgió una idea que se convirtió en su primer libro, En la Silla de Morfeo.

Su misión es compartir su historia y lecciones de vida, por medio de su libro y charlas motivacionales, con el objetivo de inspirar y tocar la mayor cantidad de vidas posibles.

Alan Tenenbaum W. was born in Guatemala City on the afternoon of Earth Day of 1982. From a very early age, his three greatest passions have been music, sports and traveling, submerging into different cultures to learn about life. When he graduated from High School, he packed up a backpack and went to Israel, where he lived in a kibbutz for six months picking banana bunches from palm trees and mingling with people from all over the World.

He had the great opportunity of living in the beautiful city of Boulder for four years, where he got his Marketing degree from the University of Colorado. After graduation, he went back to his home country where he worked for years in advertising and marketing.

It was another afternoon, on June 21st of 2008, in which Alan was born again. A mysterious dive into a pool left him unconscious under water. Fortunately, friends and relatives who were with him that day realized what happened and pulled him out on time before drowning. Nevertheless, a small piece of his shattered cervical bones bruised his spinal chord, leaving Alan a quadriplegic when he was only 26 years old.

Difficult years followed this incident for Alan, his family and friends. But with a positive attitude, patience and hard work, they managed to adapt to his new life. Alan Tenenbaum W. struggles day-by-day seeking more independence and to keep on doing what he’s passionate for.

From a note he published on Facebook, many suggested Alan to write a book… something he would’ve never thought about! During a night with insomnia, he had a great idea, which lead to his first novel: On the Morphean Chair. His mission in life is to share his story and life lessons through his book and conferences, with the objective of inspiring and helping as many as possible to see life with a positive attitude.
