Alex grew up in the Coeur d’Alene area of North Idaho where he developed a great affection for the natural environment. While studying architecture at the University of Idaho for his Bachelor and Master degrees, he had the opportunity go to Rome, Italy. Immersed in the Italian culture and surrounded by stimulating architecture, Alex honed his appreciation for design and the built environment. His background in various building trades further influenced his passion for the construction process and affirmed his belief that the architectural experience is one that involves all of the senses. Outside of the office you’ll find him living actively, enjoying friends, and wrenching on his 1995 Triumph café conversion.
