Alex's first choice in articles are ones where the client has an idea but is not really sure what she wants out of the assignment. He enjoys the challenge and the creative energy shared by him and his client in fashioning the actual piece. The finished product is a surprise and delight for both. His best pieces are written in a conversational style -- he like to imagine the reader is sitting across from him over coffee, or hiking in the hills while they have a discussion.
In his spare time, Alex works with his two Labrador retrievers, plays computer games and reads novels.He also enjoys body-building, weight-training, fishing and hiking.
He took courses on the graduate level for a Master's in Computer Science. He studied database design and management, computer architecture, LISP and artificial intelligence.

Cooking is an ongoing love for Alex. James Beard and Julia Child were early influences, and their teaching made it possible for him to become a live-in gourmet cook without formal training. His emphasis is on sharing the enjoyment and ease of preparation of good food. His current influences are Jamie Oliver and the Cooking for Engineers website.
