Alex comes to the FOX8 family from Vermont where he worked at WFFF based in Burlington. He covered a range of stories as the station’s political reporter from the statehouse in Montpelier, to following Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign from New Hampshire to South Carolina.

Alex’s career in journalism changed when two convicted killers broke out of New York’s largest maximum security prison in Dannemora. He followed the saga from beginning to end, and was even interviewed by BBC as someone who was covering the manhunt.

Born and raised in Massachusetts, Alex is a big Boston sports fan from the Red Sox to the Patriots, but will root for the Panthers (as long as they don’t play New England). He found his passion for journalism in the Tar Heel state at Elon University, where he graduated with a Television Arts degree in 2014. Go Phoenix!

Alex is excited to call the Triad his home. He’s a hiker, foodie, craft beer enthusiast and is already enjoying the culture and people our area has to offer. You can find him on FOX8 on the weekends working the camera and reporting as a Multimedia Journalist. Don’t be a stranger and welcome him to the family!
