Alex grew up in Western Massachusetts and graduated from Nyack College in 2013 with a degree in Youth and Family Studies. During his time at Nyack, he became involved in the student ministry at PBC as a volunteer and later intern. He recently moved into a full-time role with us as our Minister of Students. He is currently working towards his Master of Arts in Theology and Ministry at Fuller Theological Seminary.
Alex is married to Kate, and enjoys superheroes, playing strategy games, watching movies, and cooking (he even considered culinary arts school in high school). Although he remains a Red Sox, Patriots, and Celtics fan, Alex is becoming more and more of a New Jerseyan, especially enjoying the pizza and bagels.
