Alex was born in Gulfport, Mississippi and raised in Covington, Georgia. Don’t look for an accent, because it won’t be there unless he is doing one of his impressions to lighten the mood. He was Valedictorian of the Newton High School Class of 2013, a Gates Millennium Scholar, and graduated with Highest Honors from Georgia Tech with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and minor in Business.
He would tell you that some of his best relationships were because of running. He was a Division I runner at Tech specializing in all things distance. You can still find Alex running the streets of Atlanta every now and again as he prepares for his next marathon.
Alex has discovered a deep passion in social emotional learning for all ages. He has taken his writing skills to the next level by self-publishing two children’s books where he shares stories around resiliency and empathy. Since publishing, he has had the opportunity to speak to groups as small as classrooms all the way up to entire school districts. He aspires to scale this and reach schools across the country with messages of hope and encouragement.
