Born in Texas but raised in Western New York, Alex is a graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology Industrial Design program and prides himself on pushing designs as far as they can go. He brings skills in packaging design from his previous venture in NYC, as well as overseas experience in China from a post-graduation internship. His favorite part of the design process is the Concept Development and prototyping, and is known to do a lot of sketching, coming up with solutions on the spot, and is the in-house
3D printing expert.
Some would label Alex as a nerd… And he would agree! He enjoys everything science fiction, including Star Wars and Marvel, and is always interested in the latest and greatest in technology.
