Alex is originally born in Glasgow however has lived in Edinburgh, Scotland most of his life. Since his first season in British Columbia, Canada, Alex has continued to chase snow across Europe working in Austria, Italy and Switzerland teaching groups skiing of all ages and abilities.
Alex was first drawn to Hokkaido by the rumours of bottomless powder and unprecedented amounts of snowfall that covers the island of a daily basis. Since discovering the rumours were no myth the exquisite food and great nightlife has kept him coming back.
During the summer Alex works in a fast paced cocktail bar teaching masterclasses of cocktail making and mixology to groups in Edinburgh. When Alex is not teaching skiing or making cocktails he likes to spend his time on the sunny beaches of Portugal surfing or the highlands of Scotland climbing and mountain biking.
