My name is Alex and I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest where I still live along with my fiancé and our little cat Zoey. My freelance work covers a broad range of topics with a slight focus on geology, history, art and modern architecture in Western Washington and the surrounding areas. As a teen I became captivated with 19th and early 20th century authors. Poe, Lovecraft, Verne and so many others whose tales of innovation and a modern life I would never experience slowly led me to an unshakable interest in how location, technology, and religion shape every individual’s perception of the world. As a young adult I went to Western Washington University and graduated with a B.S. in Geology and a minor in anthropology with the desire to use my education to understand how this connection between humanity and our technology has, and will continue to, affect us.
