Alex recently moved to Portland, OR from New York City where he lived for the past decade working as a graphic designer in marketing and communications. His most recent position with the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) inspired his passion for safe and affirming schools for all students. As the graphic designer with Stand for Children, he is excited to further Stand's mission through design leadership and collaboration. Alex is a proud uncle to his niece who started preschool this fall. When not behind the computer Alex enjoys quilting, fiber arts, and anything crafty.
