Certifications & Awards
Alex has won two Addy Awards, one for his illustration work and one for Best of Show. During his attendance at Fresno State, Alex was the recipient of the Anne Elizabeth Fisher art scholarship and was a semi-finalist in the national Adobe Design Achievement Awards. Beyond his accolades in art, Alex is also an amazing musician, and is the recipient of the John Phillips Sousa Award, a national award that recognizes superior musicianship and leadership.
Alex loves serving others, and over the years, has offered hands-on help with organizations such as the American Cancer Associations Discovery Shop. He has also worked with the Visalia Emergency Aid Council as a Spanish communication specialist to connect low-income families with basic necessities. Alex is very passionate about working with the local LGBT community and, after attending camp himself, has become a mentor and sponsor of Camp Lost Boys, a camp for men of trans experience. He has also assisted with the creation of PSAs for Trans-E-Motion, a local nonprofit organization that helps educate, support, and advocate for transgender persons and their families.
A Cool Cat
In truth, Alex would never be a dog. He’s independent, self-reliant, loves cat naps, and hates water. Cats are far too curious for their own good, and for Alex, this means he is always learning—even if sometimes the “learning experience” results in minor injury.
Alex has both high I and high S, which means he is energized by people and, in turn, is good at creating enthusiasm in others. He relies heavily on his intuition, as opposed to the way things have always been done, which means he is able to bring fresh, innovative ideas to the table. He is committed to bringing those ideas to life.
