Alex was born and raised in Washington, D.C.
Eventually he attended the Catholic University of American and graduated with a B.S. in Architecture.
He was dissatisfied sitting behind a desk and joined a life of adventure on the high seas with Titan Salvage, flying to jobs worldwide and occasionally chartering helicopters to do so.
He has worked on complex oil and gas projects in addition to his work in salvage, providing him the insight that the maritime world needed robotics, badly.
In 2014 he co-founded Sea Machines and moved to the Boston area to spearhead the effort.
He enjoys playing with cars, ships, bicycles and anything with a mechanical or electrical heart.
