Alex has been with the Third River Marketing team for 5.9 years. He graduated from Sprague High School in 2008 and promptly went to Chemeketa Community College for Visual Communications.

He just bought a home out in quaint Stayton, Oregon with his wonderful fiancée Ashley. They found each other when they were both in need, and they have a 7 year old daughter named Vera. When he’s not spending time with his family, he likes to tinker in his workshop, making furniture and wooden knickknacks. Alex was the 2015 recipient of the Outstanding Partner of the Year award from the Salem Chamber of Commerce. He enjoys helping others learn the skills he taught himself and enjoys a cup of tea or coffee on a brisk morning. He’s played video games since he was a wee lad including Mega Man, Zelda, and other classic games and currently spends much of his limited gaming time playing Overwatch – and if you don’t like him enough already, he mains Mercy.
