Alex spent fifteen years in telecommunications, specifically in projects where he was responsible for designing and implementing network infrastructures for tier one carriers. This involved working closely with corporate customers to develop technical solutions and providing in-depth technical training to engineering and sales staff.
Alex is an active member of the Concrete5 community and regularly contributes to the Concrete5 forums. Publishing credits include Technical Reviewer for the Beginners Guide to Concrete5.
His technical knowledge and corporate training experience means that Alex is as comfortable communicating in laymans terms with clients as he is in techno-geek with software programmers.
Alex is a Londoner born and bred and spent his childhood playing in Battersea park with his older brothers. 'I'm a Chelsea fan just like Papa' is his daughter's mantra.
He enjoys being by the sea (long winter walks on the beach rather than swimming with fish in the summer) and making log fires for the girls when its cold outside.

Sadly, Alex passed away after a 9 month battle with bladder cancer.
His last message to everyone was:
"so long, and thanks for all the fish"
