Hi, I'm Alex.

I do a lot of different things.

If you're here to learn about me as a human and the bazillion projects I have going at any given time, click here.

What's my mission, you ask? I'm here to help people: 

  • Feel more competent, more cared for, and better understood.

  • Learn things that they find meaningful and valuable.

  • Solve interesting problems, and lead exciting lives. 


Here's how I'm doing that now.

I hope you have a great day, or if it isn't so great, I hope that it improves soon!

Things I've done and organizations I've worked with the might make you trust and like me. 

Or not. Like, that's sometimes how it goes. And that's chill. 

I'm letting this list be a little messy. That's okay.
