Alex has worked in finance for over 8 years and recently completed his MBA through the part-time program at George Washington University. He’s no stranger to risk or discomfort. When he's not underwriting loans, Alex can be found traversing mud pits and obstacles or willingly carrying around 30+ pounds in his backpack for 12 hours.
He is not all gruff and tough though. He has a soft spot for pursuing community projects aimed at empowering kids and loves chocolate chip cookies. He has lived in Washington, DC since 2001 and, while he thinks about leaving every once in a while, he always stumbles upon something that reinvigorates his love for this city.
