Michael Mascioni, a former visiting student at Richmond, received the Albert Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award earlier this year from the Marquis Who’s Who organisation.

Michael attended Richmond during the spring semester of 1975 studying English Literature, French, and Philosophy as a visiting student.  He received his B.A. from St. Lawrence University and went on to do an M.S. degree in management at the Polytechnic Institute of NY (now PolyNYU).

In addition to his Albert Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award, Michael has written a chapter on the future of immersive media in amusement parks for a book called, ‘50:50 – Scenarios for the Next 50 Years’, which will be published in November by Fast Future Publishing.

Michael is a freelance writer on digital media, clean energy, and other topics for such publications as Innovation & Tech Today and Inter Park.  In addition, he does conference production and marketing work in digital media, and served as co-chairman of a conference called ‘The Future of Immersive Leisure’. He is also co-author of ‘The Out-of-Home Immersive Entertainment Frontier’.
