Born in Birmingham Michigan, a Detroit suburb, where he began his musical studies. Alex’s love of music brought him to the Interlochen Arts Academy, where he studied trumpet with Ken Larson. He is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he studied composition and orchestration with the esteemed classical composer, Laura Schwendinger.
At UW-Madison, Alex composed for a variety of student films; he also played in many musical groups around campus. He wrote the fanfare for the UW-Madison College of Engineering’s commencement, and a piece for the Wisconsin Brass Quintet. Recently, he scored the indie-game “Ruins to Rumble,” which is now available on Steam.
He first fell in love with music listening to the soundtracks of Koji Kondo, John Williams, and Hans Zimmer. Alex especially enjoys the collaborative aspect of screen scoring and how music enhances multimedia. He prefers to compose for large ensembles for the great range of colors and emotions that they offer, but is equally at home writing for small groups.
Currently, Alex is one of the fellows in the Society of Composers and Lyricists’ Los Angeles mentor program, and scoring a soon to be released dark comedy/horror web series.
