Alex was born in Illinois, but spent most of his childhood growing up in sunny Southern California. After graduating from the University of California Irvine in 2010 with a B.A. in Economics, he had no idea what he wanted to do with his life. Like, no clue. He knew he possessed certain strengths and interests, but had no real vision of his future. Therefore, he thought the best way to figure it out was, simply, to try things!
As a student, being involved in numerous extra-curricular activities revealed to Alex how much he loves working with, and for, people. As a recent graduate, he combined this love with the “just try things” mentality by taking on various internships and jobs that further developed his interpersonal skills. Some of his past experiences include working at a talent management company, restaurant, wig store, independent music label, and elementary school. Currently, his creative passion for DJing provides him opportunities to serve people, as well as an outlet to express himself and have fun.
Prior to joining Fusion Los Angeles, his position at Roadtrip Nation helped him understand the significance of self-discovery and importance of pursuing your passions. He firmly believes that people are their best-self when they’re doing what they love, so he strives to empower students with this philosophy in his classroom. Ultimately, Alex feels that the only way to make the world a better place is to inform and inspire its future generations. He wants all youth to dream big and do work!
