Alex grew up in Northern California and received his bachelor’s degree in Forestry from California Polytechnic University, Humboldt in 2018. Before starting his master’s degree in 2020, Alex worked for the industrial timber and education sectors. Alex’s master’s thesis focused on the intersection of forest health and forest management. In particular, how to regenerate black spruce that has been harvested after a dwarf mistletoe infection in the southern boreal forest of Northern Minnesota.
In his free time, Alex enjoys spending time outdoors with his family and friends. Alex is an avid hunter and angler and volunteers with Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, a non-profit committed to advocating for public lands, public waters, and wildlife. After learning the ropes of hunting and angling in Minnesota, Alex is excited to explore the many hunting and angling opportunities Oregon has to offer. Most recently, Alex has gone crabbing and salmon fishing with his twin brother who lives in Central Oregon. Alex also enjoys woodworking and has enjoyed making furniture for his family when he has the time.
Alex is excited to be in Oregon and hopes to one-day purchase timber property to live and hunt on, as well as to manage.
