Alex was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona and fell in love with diving in the Sea of Cortez on an expedition in 2016. After being washed away by Hurricane Sergio on the same beach a year later, he discovered his passion for experiential education. Alex has spent previous summers working in Honduras, achieving his PADI Instructor Certification and gaining experience in the dive industry. He is now a senior at Western Colorado University in Gunnison, double majoring in Outdoor Education and Business Administration. He enjoys mountaineering, skiing, and Arsenal football matches when not exploring the underwater world.
