Alex was born in Eugene, and lived in Thurston until he was 9, then moved to Veneta with his family in 2008. He graduated from Elmira High School in 2015. In high school Alex ran track and was a state athlete in the 110 meter hurdles and in club track he was ranked in the top 5 of the northwest region for the 400 meter hurdles.
Alex got my start working on cars at a young age because of his father. Right after high school he got his first automotive job at a Dodge dealership where he was a lube technician then quickly made his way as a service technician for a year. During the summer Alex worked with his dad on his 1969 Camaro.
He enjoys hunting, fishing, and camping. In his off time he is always working on friends and family's vehicles or out in the forest taking pictures.
