A propos

Award winning and result rearing, a smooth blend of business, strategy and creative.

Having spent 8 years in marketing and advertising, Alex has won over a dozen international awards, made clients millions and worked with some of the biggest brands in the world. Hired for his 360º thinking, he tackles business problems with creative solutions.

In 2015, art director turned author with the debut of ‘All Out’ – a national bestseller. During his public speaking campaign, Alex spoke about the importance of embracing family during times of uncertainty, strengthening generational bonds and ending suicide in the LGBTQ community.

From 2012 - 2014, Alex lead a third year degree course on media convergence (the merger of mass and digital marketing) at the Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto.

Off the beaten path, Alex photographs, travels and star gazes.

Alex is currently an independent creative down under. Wrestling roos and dodging spiders.
