When I asked Alex what he was passionate about, this Air Academy senior remarked, “Drumming and working on cars”. Alex loves to work on, as well as drive cars, specifically 90’s imports like Toyotas and Subarus. And drumming on his drum set is another favorite pastime.
Alex loves adventure and has been skiing since the 2nd grade (Monarch is his favorite resort), and he also has his Advanced Open Water Scuba certification. He loves to dive in Cancun, Mexico, and a highlight was seeing a 12 ft Black Tip shark.
When not in school or participating in his many diverse hobbies, Alex can be found working at an AMC movie theatre. He also collects tennis shoes. In addition, he helped construct a cobblestone entryway at a local school and volunteers at his church.
After graduation he would love to travel to Germany and then pursue a degree in Mechanical Engineering at either the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs, or Colorado State University.
