Born in Virginia, Alex's father took him fishing for brook trout and bass in ponds and streams. Growing up he developed a passion for fishing and hunting. At the age of eight his family moved to Colorado. This is where his bass fishing passion really began. Although most of the fishing in Colorado was for trout there were many bass ponds near his house. He got hooked the first time bass fishing when he landed a 7 lb lunker with 6 lb test. That is when his dream formed to be a professional bass angler. After graduating high school he enrolled in Colorado State University and started his studies in fishery biology.
After a year, the bass fishing passion had him only thinking about one thing, BASS. He was still in the bass club and was leading the angler of the year points, but he wanted more. His family supported his dream and moved him to Lake Guntersville, in August 2004, so he could pursue his dream. Since moving to Lake Guntersville, Alex has started a guide business, Spinnerbait Kid Guide Service, and guides 100-150 days a year. He also fishes local tournaments, with his biggest accomplishment coming in 2012 winning an FLW Everstart on Lake Guntersville. That was the financial push he needed to join the big boys on the FLW Tour. 2014 will be Alex's 2nd year on Tour.
