BIO

Alex was born and raised in Reading, MA, a suburb of Boston. He started skiing when he was 2 years old at his favorite resort that he now calls home, Sunday River. When he was eleven years old he rode up a ski lift with his idol, Simon Dumont, and after spending the day watching his tricks and learning new skills, Alex knew that this was his dream. He then changed his focus from traditional skier to park skier and spent every weekend trying to perfect new skills. In the summer when skiing was not available, Alex would take to astroturf and create his own rails and runs and practice endlessly.

When Alex was fifteen years old he decided to move across the country and join Windell’s Ski Academy in Mount Hood, OR. Windell’s has assumed the leading role in transforming the world’s best snow sport athletes and Alex knew that by moving there he would be learning from the top names in the sport and would become the best skier he could be.

While training for the 2012 World Ski Invitational, Alex suffered a serious injury. He had taken a nasty fall, landed on the sharp end of his pole, and split open his right cheek. He needed 400 stiches in his face and luckily did not lose his eyesight or any other facial functions. Alex has embraced the scar on his face and returned to skiing again. Two years later Alex competed in the 2014 World Ski Invitational and completed one of his best runs ever and placed 6th. Alex says this was a monumental moment for him and represented all of his hard work, dedication, and sacrifice for the sport.

When Alex is not skiing he likes to hang out with his family, Mom, Dad, older Brother and younger Sister. He also enjoys following soccer and basketball, but most of all is a die-hard Red Sox fan!
