My name is Alex.

I live with my wife and dog in the Boston area where I work remotely as a software engineer at Netflix. I studied physics and French during my undergrad at Washington University in St. Louis, and I more recently studied computer science part-time at Tufts while working. I love to write and teach, and I’ve found that explaining things is the best way to learn.

I used to work at Google, and before that I worked at Giant Otter Technologies, a very small AI startup that got acquired by Drift.
