Alex is a born and raised Newporter with expertise in web development and IT and a passion for helping humanity where he can. Biking has always been a part of his life as a way to get around, for the feeling of the wind and being free. To Alex, being part of the Bike Newport community means joining group rides like Bike to the Beach, volunteering his skills for the agency's IT, and helping to marshal the monthly Full Moon Rides. In addition to his work as a freelance web designer and as Programmer Analyst at Merrill, Alex works to stay sane and be healthy at the same time! He bikes for charity during Newport's warmer months and is on a team called Chasing a Cure for Bike MS.
