Alex is from the Dallas/Fort Worth area in Texas. He graduated from Texas A&M with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science with a minor in History. Following graduation, Alex served with AmeriCorps in Newark, New Jersey as a 7th-grade math tutor. After realizing that teaching math wasn’t for him, he sought out a different opportunity through AmeriCorps. Alex will be serving with Envirolution as an AmeriCorps VISTA for the next year as the Research and Evaluation Coordinator. It’s his first time living or visiting Reno, so he is excited to take advantage of the scenic landscapes and do a lot of hiking and exploring.
