Tell us a bit more about yourself Alex:
I have a strong passion for creative expression and work fulltime as a Digital Designer at Big Red Group. This coupled with an adventurous and expressive lifestyle has helped shape me into a well rounded person and athlete.


When it comes to my sporting background, I came from State/National level swimming in which I competed for 3 years. Since then, I have moved into Multi-sport, where I became enthralled with the challenge that Multisport and multistage racing entails.


In 2008, I completed my first adventure race. In the last four years I've completed lots of races, with a best result to date placing 3rd in the Marysville to Melbourne.


Recently I have made the move to competing overseas, looking to grow and quickly progress my career.
