Alex is excited to be a part of the Fusion Marin team. He studied Biochemistry at San Diego State University, where he also co-captained his rugby team to several undefeated seasons. After graduation, he decided to pursue an opportunity in rugby at the professional level for the US Rugby Sevens Team. Months later, when the rugby dream was over, he enrolled for a Masters in Bio-organic Chemistry at Cal State University Long Beach, where he investigated the fluorination of amino acids and how to safely incorporate them into proteins for proteomic studies. While there, Alex taught and lectured chemistry classes as well as labs to further solidify his knack for teaching.
Alex is a busy body, keeping up with activities such as crossfit, Olympic weightlifting, video gaming, snowboarding, cycling, scuba diving, trying to read one book a week, as well as pursuing a second MS degree in Forensic Science.
