A Bit About Me

Hey I'm Alex! I'm a Growth Marketer, Photographer, and Entrepreneur from Huntington Beach, California. I graduated from USC in 2018 and have been working as a Growth Marketer ever since. My dad bought me my first camera when I was 10, and since then I've developed a passion for capturing engaging and captivating content of countries, people, and experiences. I also love surfing and my top places to surf are South Africa, Indonesia, and Costa Rica. My mission is to build sustainable and social businesses that give back to our planet and world. I also started a Hot Sauce company with my brother last year. I mean, who doesn't love a good hot sauce?
