Alex was born and raised in Southern California and began his career as a realtor with Alain Pinel Realtors, a boutique residential real estate firm located in Silicon Valley.

As part of Global Strategy Group’s research and operations teams, Alex works on both operational upkeep and supporting the research practice as a Research Operations Elections Assistant.

Alex loves TIME magazine so much that he has collected every addition for the past 5 years and has his favorites framed on his living room wall. When not in the office, he enjoys spending time outdoors at one of New York’s many parks, rooftops, and waterfronts. He is also an avid traveler and has been to over 25 countries and counting. Alex received his BBA in Finance and Real Estate from California State University, Fullerton.
