Hey there 👋

I'm Alex, a Staff Software Engineer and technical lead at The New York Times.

With almost 11 years of experience in various technical fields, I've had the opportunity to build some truly awesome experiences across several industries: news, streaming, geospatial, print, and all sorts of things in between. I studied Computer Science and Psychology at Virginia Military Institute, where I was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps. After serving abroad and traveling the globe, I settled down in Virginia Beach where I've lived since 2018.

When I'm not clacking away on an overpriced keyboard ⌨️, you can find me misting my plants 🌱, obsessing over what renovation to tackle next 🏠, or spending quality time with my wife and 4-year-old son. 👨‍👩‍👦
