Growing up in Western Montana, Alex spent his summers on Flathead Lake relaxing and kicking it back with friends and family. If he could be anywhere in the world, Alex would love to retire in a cabin by a lake with his wife, enjoying the rest of his days in solitude. Being active in his community, Alex has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity where he has painted houses and at the Channel One Food Bank where he packages food and stocks shelves. Having the appetite for freedom, but understanding the need for social connection, Alex’s spirit animal relays a wolf. Encompassing his “wolf-side” and his need for social connection, Alex would definitely give up his phone for 30 days rather than going a lifetime without ice cream. Not only does he love ice cream, but Alex has learned many engineering skills such as calculating duct static.
