Martin Lo ‘84 BID is a RISD ID grad and is the only alum I know in the world who has moved an entire port operation in Hong Kong hundreds of miles away to mainland China – thus is RISD, you never know what to expect from our unique family of graduates. Martin accomplished that feat in the late 90’s, moving his family’s shipbuilding business and facing a variety of unimaginable challenges. As Martin put it, “RISD taught me how to solve problems of any scale.” Judging by the size of the shipbuilding facility I visited, I now see a whole new side to a RISD education. -JM
