Previously, Alex worked in several strategy and leadership development capacities at GE Healthcare, Allina Health, and the Collective Action Lab.

An old-soul Millennial, Alex cut his teeth in the world at the dinner table listening to his mother talk about her work as a therapist. His vocational interests are informed by a number of influences, which include his parents’ careers serving others, his many mentors, and the untimely loss of his beloved father, Peter. Alex is a Minnesota native and resident of Northeast Minneapolis. Outside of work, he can be found riding his bike, surrounding himself with close friends and family, and exploring the North Shore of Lake Superior.
