Alex was born and raised in Alabama. First living in a state park on the Tennessee River then growing up on Alabama’s white sand beaches, he has always had an affinity for nature and wildlife. Alex started his professional career while studying film at the University of Alabama. Working as a news cameraman, he covered President Obama’s inauguration and received three Associated Press awards. After graduating, Alex left news to enter the documentary world. Shortly after, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill happened, and he moved back home to Gulf Shores to document the tragedy for the city. This led him to Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic with whom he has traveled around the world, chronicling the adventures of these once-in-a lifetime trips.
In 2012, Alex took a break from world traveling to focus on entering the motion picture industry. He now lives in Atlanta, Georgia where he is a member of the International Cinematographers Guild and has been credited to working major film and TV shows.
Now Alex is excited to sync back with the Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic team and continue filming these incredible journeys. As a video chronicler, Alex has his cameras at the ready 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with just one goal: to capture the essence of each expedition. Voyage DVDs are available at the end of each expedition—they often prove to be remarkable ways of remembering and recapturing the magic of these extraordinary journeys.
