Alex has been building things on the web professionally since he was just a kid.

He helped found P'unk Avenue while a student of the multimedia program at the University of the Arts. He's most passionate about the technology side of the work, but mixed background in art and design has allowed him to experience and appreciate every part of the studio's process over the years — from full stack development to user experience design to project management.

While at P'unk Avenue, Alex helped conceive and launch such initiatives as the Junto, Ignite Philly, and the Apostrophe CMS. He also led the team that designed and developed the NIH funded Way to Health platform, a ground-breaking research platform in the field of behavioral economics and behavior modification.

Alex still writes code, loves a good whiteboard session, and is at his best when he's helping teams improve how they collaborate and get things done
