Technology, computers, art, and gaming have always been an integral part of Alex. As far back as third grade, he recalls drawing conceptual art of characters and coming up with ideas for games and mechanics. He grew up in Southern Georgia, where he attended the Savannah College of Art and Design and majored in 3D Animation with a minor in Interactive Design and Game Mechanics. He expanded his skill set independently before working two years as a lead instructor at iD Tech, teaching a wide spectrum of subjects, including videography, Minecraft modding, and 3D printing. Finally, he made his way to Alexander Dawson where he teaches many of the STEAM electives offered.
