About Alex

Experience Designer, Innovative Thinker, Expert List Maker, and Hospitality Professional

I am passionate about transforming the intangible ideas and concepts of others into exceptional events and experiences. I strongly believe in the positive power of diversified portfolios and diversified thought to create change and motion. I am fulfilled by the chance to help others surpass their own expectations of themselves. I value creativity, hard work, and presentation.

My ultimate goal as a professional is to create experiences that people cherish and keep as positive memories; that provide people with stories that bring communities together; that bring an added-value to the lives of all involved; and are just fun to be a part of.
