Alex has always demonstrated an interest in technology. From building computers as a young kid to managing high-end audio equipment warehouses and auto repair shops, tech and gadgets have been a staple interest and passion. When not working with tech, Alex prides himself on researching and purchasing the perfect gadget or tool for his home and hobby needs, with a particular interest in audiophilia. Through obsessive testing and analysis at home, he avoids the dreaded feeling of ever wasting hard-earned dollars. Outside of tech, Alex loves rock climbing and has spent a decade exploring the country's offerings, moonlighting as a route setter at several commercial climbing gyms across the US.
