Born and raised in Massachusetts, Alex was raised by his single mother in a blue-collar community. His upbringing taught him a strong work ethic. He found his way into the yachting world through a friend who worked in the industry, and instantly fell in love with the adventurous lifestyle and gorgeous destinations yachting had to offer. Although he initially employed a "fake it 'til you make it" mentality, Alex is a quick learner and worked his way up the ladder. He works each charter with pride, and has his sights set on eventually becoming a captain. Working as a deckhand (and eventually promoted to lead deckhand) on season five of Below Deck Mediterranean, Alex brought his confidence – and a dash of New England humor – to any situation. Admittedly stubborn and a shameless flirt, this life of the party works as hard as he plays.
