BUILDING WITH WOOD
With a career where everything is intangible, Alex likes working with his hands and building things when he’s outside the office. Woodworking is something he and his dad bonded over as he was growing up. Some of his larger projects have included a dining room table for his wife, when they were getting married, and a backyard swing set for his kids, since they couldn’t go to the park during the pandemic. He also enjoys giving handmade gifts. This hobby has taught him how to have a lot of patience, focus, and attention to detail, something he hopes to pass on to his daughter and son when they get older.
