Hi, I’m Alex. I am passionate about serving the developing world through increasing access to information.

I'm currently Director of Product & Ecosystem at Planet. Planet is a company that designs and manufactures miniature satellites with the mission to image the entire planet every day, and make global change visible, accessible, and actionable. I'm also on the Board of Interserve, a Christian organization following Jesus and empowering communities in the developing world.

I previously led mobile partner products at Twitter and helped launch the partner program at Google for Google Apps. Before that, he co-founded Global Cycle Solutions, a social enterprise based in Tanzania bringing affordable and quality technology to underserved populations.

Alex has a dual Masters from MIT and MIT Sloan, and a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Cornell University.
