Born in Chile and raised in Argentina, Alex spent his childhood living in different parts of these countries and getting to know the local cultures.
Alex studied Journalism at the University of Chile and did post graduate studies at UBC in Vancouver, Canada.
Working as a Chilean TV producer for years, Alex worked in the news department doing research, and produced a successful late night show as well as a wildlife show that did stories all over America.
Since he was a kid his life’s dream was to visit Easter Island, or Rapa Nui in the local language. He visited during his university years, together with his wife, Terangi, who was born on this unique Pacific island.
Alex has worked for years with Lindblad Expeditions in Easter Island, and also works as a guide all along Chile.
An avid diver and photographer, he has contributed his photos to books about Easter Island. His love for the cultural past and present of Rapa Nui, Polynesia, and other areas of South America, as well as his passion for wildlife and nature, make him a passionate guide. He is excited to share his understanding and knowledge with fellow travelers.
