Before joining Whitman Associates in July 2022, Alex was a district staff member for a U.S. Representative in the Chicago suburbs, specializing in immigration casework and outreach. He also spent two years as a Teach For America Corps Member teaching middle school in Eastern North Carolina.
Through Whitman, Alex was placed in a temp-to-hire position as an Administrative and Database Assistant at a law firm in Dupont Circle. After the uncertainty of moving from Illinois to the DMV, the position has given him an opportunity to set down roots in the area while working with a great team of attorneys and administrative staff.
Alex lives in Prince George’s County, MD with his partner, Anna, and his cat, Furiosa. When he isn’t cheering on Arsenal FC or the Florida Gators, he is likely rewatching one of Mike Flanagan’s Netflix series, playing Destiny 2, or over-thinking his fantasy football lineup as defending league champion.
