Alex started on his path to Midtown by moving to Austin to attend UT, and joining HCBC UT in the Spring of 2008 (initially just to play guitar on the worship team). In 2011, he met Claire, who was serving on the tech team. Alex finished his bachelor's degree in 2012 in physics, and he and Claire married in the summer of 2014. Alex came onto the elder board in the Fall of 2016 and still serves on the worship team at Midtown. He is very passionate about loving his neighbors and coworkers well. He is currently completing his Ph.D. in nuclear physics at UT and enjoys spending his time traveling with Claire and playing with their dog, Mia, and their cat, Lilu.
