Alex was influenced to play music thanks to his family of talented musicians. Hailing from Upper Arlington, Ohio, he started taking piano lessons at the age of six and cello at the age of nine. While participating in many different music programs he found another love: Rock n roll. When his father introduced him to classic bands like AC/DC, Deep Purple, and The Ramones, he found the catchy grooves and raw sound irresistible. Intrigued by the unique tone of the bass guitar, he picked up a cheap P-Bass knockoff and never looked back. Alex's greatest are Flea, Mike Dirnt, and Geddy Lee. After playing with The Dream Thieves and creating a solo project, a special opportunity presented itself to join a one-of-a-kind group. Now an Arts Management major at The Ohio State University, Alex lives to perform and share his music with the world.
