Alex began writing code as an eight year old on his first computer, a Tandy TRS-80. In 1995, Alex developed his first website and has been hooked ever since. He went on to study Computer Science at Georgetown University, followed by working as a government consultant and classroom instructor in the Washington, D.C.-area.
Alex has spent his entire career developing web applications that work in the browser, and teaching web development technologies. He has developed several large-scale eLearning and CMS applications, including a CMS for the LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon that hosted 10 high-traffic websites including the Chicago Marathon website. In 2010, Alex moved to Seattle and worked with MSN to develop Big on the Web.
Alex currently lives in Tahoe City, California, where he continues to provide classroom and online-based training regularly for Yahoo, eBay/Paypal, and Stanford University. When Alex isn’t wired into code or in front of a classroom, you can find him somewhere in the Sierra Nevada back country.
