Alex was born in La Crosse, Wisconsin, but raised (mostly) in Central Texas near Fort Hood. He went to the University of Texas at Austin and graduated with a degree in Government/Political Science. After graduating he decided to stay in Austin for the tacos, BBQ, and his wife. He has worked most of his professional life in the service industry with some experience in substitute teaching, test proctoring, and Census taking. Alex loves movies and movie related trivia, playing guitar, going to live shows, soccer, and his Great Dane, Athos. He’s kissed the Blarney Stone and played on a German soccer team. He is currently teaching himself Programming and Music Production (or at least trying to). He also remains the fastest crab-walker, though he’s never met a serious challenger.
