Alex is from Charleston, South Carolina. He was raised to enjoy the outdoors and it’s beauty and has maintained that as a focal point in his adult life. Although there are no rocks in South Carolina’s coast, he began rock climbing on a climbing team and learned the potential for personal growth that lies in adventure. He graduated from Warren Wilson College where he majored in Outdoor Leadership and Education. He has since been working with adolescents in outdoor education and summer camps, traveling, and hunting for more rock faces. He enjoys sharing the outdoors with youth and facilitating learning through fun.
Alex also enjoys backpacking, hiking, slack-lining, reading, playing drums, and long conversations.
