Alex has been working in the Behavioral Health Treatment field for over five years. Prior to joining Beacon, Alex was a Senior Level Field staff at a Therapeutic Wilderness program in North Georgia. Alex has also worked as a Park Ranger, Wildlands Firefighter & First Responder, General Contractor and Electrician.
When Alex was younger, he had the opportunity to live in the Amazon rainforest of Brazil, where he learned about zoology and the social behavior of Golden Lion Tamarin Monkeys.
Alex holds two associates degrees in computer science and fine arts. Alex is passionate about teaching, guiding, sharing wisdom and bringing a compassionate, relations-based approach to his work. Alex’s background in wilderness and his First Responder Training lend themselves to a safety-conscious approach in his management of Beacon’s Adventure Programming. Living by the mantra “Wherever you go that's where you are - so make sure you're prepared” Alex plays a crucial role in developing our Experiential Education curriculum.
