Though Alex, a native of Fort Wayne, Indiana, graduated from IU’s archrival Purdue University (B.A. in Sociology ’18), he uses his prior experience as an intern for that institution’s Marketing and Media photo team to create stunning visuals for IU.

Alex has been a photographer for around six years; he got his first professional position as a photographer at Purdue’s student-run newspaper, The Exponent. He would later go on to become the editor of the photo desk, capturing many important moments on campus and on the court/field at athletic events.

In addition to being a still photographer, Alex enjoys aerial photography and has obtained his FAA Part 107 certification to perform commercial drone flights.

When he’s not out and about shooting photos, Alex is probably playing guitar or playing video games such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive or Rocket League on his custom-built desktop PC.

Alex also loves to travel whenever possible, especially with Emily, his girlfriend of three years.

Being a university photographer means capturing moments that will forever be a part of that school’s history and tradition, and will shape people’s memories of this time period for years to come.
