Alex’s mastery of communication is equal parts art and science. As a former marketing director and public affairs strategist, he put his broad range of skills to work to further operational, legislative and fundraising priorities in education and nonprofit organizations. He has also used his communication insights to advance diversity, equity and inclusion. With an MBA and two undergraduate degrees, Alex is a loyal PLU Lute and a committed lifelong Tacoman. He is also a vocal coach and volunteers with groups advocating for human rights and children with special needs. While his curriculum vitae and his pocket square might come off as pretty serious, Alex knows how to laugh – and it’s contagious.
