Alex is a native of the Pacific Northwest and has never left. For some reason he studied theatre and comparative literature. Luckily, he also spent a lot of time "studying" cocktails, food, and then later, communication studies. Now he applies all of that by writing about the stuff that interests him, surrounded by some of the coolest movers and shakers in Portland. In his free time he hangs out with his roommate's cat and watches Marvel movies. Follow him on his twitter @FraniacDrinks or his Instagram @franiac.
