A local who grew up in Prince George, Alex studied Geography (with a minor in GIS) at UNBC. He later attended Selkirk College, where he received his Advanced GIS Diploma.
As a newcomer to the industry, Alex brings a lot of enthusiasm to his role. He’s inquisitive and appreciates the opportunity to explore and contribute to the development of new technology.
Alex is captivated by health- and resource-oriented projects. His interest in rural health delivery came about during university. This cumulated in a project with rural doctors. Together, they created a GIS web portal focused on healthcare delivery.
A quick-study, Alex has already learned a lot from his more senior colleagues. He’s grateful for their support—and how ready they are to meet virtually and provide guidance.
Alex appreciates how geospatial technology can inform and address difficult questions. He believes that data-access can help us better understand large-scale problems—and potentially improve lives. Advancements in AI and machine learning excite Alex, as does the power of cloud computing.
Alex counts Rome and Havana among the most beautiful cities he’s visited. The pandemic interrupted his plans to travel in Asia, but he’ll take that trip once matters return to normal.
When not working, Alex enjoys games (video, board, and role-playing), time with close friends, playing with cats, and exercise.
