Born and raised in Western Canada, Alex is a 26 year-old digital polymath with a background in academic research, project management, user experience design, and leadership for innovation.

After graduating with distinction as a double major in Liberal Studies and Digital Media, he was accepted into Vancouver's Master of Digital Media, where he collaborated on successful solutions with clients in film, video games, and television, through a integrated approach to project management and experience design.

With a strong attraction to visionary organizations and a systems philosophy, Alex began an internship as a Marketing and Operations strategist for THNK School of Creative Leadership—a "C-school" combining the best of design thinking, business model innovation, and entrepreneurship for social impact to envision and create systemic change across global paradigms.

After ten months, he decided to invest his formidable energy into a decade-long dream: attending Schumacher College, an internationally-acclaimed institution for transformative learning on issues relating to paradigmatic sustainability and societal transformation.

He is currently a graduate student on their Holistic Science (MSc) program.
