Amazing Opportunity To Make A Positive Difference

About Alex

I'm a father, husband, sailor, helicopter pilot (in training), philanthropist, author, and entrepreneur / CEO.


I've been very fortunate to have great friends, an amazing family, a career that I have never thought of as work but instead more of a mission, endless curiosity, and an opportunity to make a positive impact.


How could life be any better? Beats me but I am very lucky.
