Alex is a Director of Photography that is regularly hired to film documentary, docu-style productions, and high-end interviews.

In 2022 he was nominated for a News & Documentary Emmy for his work with Vice News Tonight. 

Equal parts journalist and technician, Alex is as comfortable conducting interviews as he is lighting them, and has worked as both newspaper photojournalist and magazine photo editor. In 2022 he completed Hostile Environment Training in Los Angeles, as well as Firefighter Academy (structure and wildland) in Colorado, where he is a volunteer firefighter.

An accomplished outdoorsman, Alex has skied first descents in Svalbard, scuba dived fjords in Iceland, mountain biked Western China, and climbed 35 of Colorado's 14,000' peaks.

He has worked extensively throughout the US, as well as Bolivia, Panama, Mexico, Guatemala, Chile, Norway, and Canada.  He lives in Colorado with his wife and daughter.
