Alex swapped a coaching role at Newcastle United Academy for a ‘work and travel’ job in the USA in his first year at university – five summers, two winters and a master’s degree later and there was no doubt that a career in travel was on the cards.
After lifeguarding, waterskiing and wakeboarding through multiple summer camps in the States, Alex was naturally drawn to a colourful career in adventure travel. Since then, he has managed resorts in the Alps, road-tripped the length and breadth of 36 US states and, more recently, set his sights on exploring the world’s last great wilderness, the Antarctic.
As our in-house Polar Region Specialist, Alex is fascinated by both the wildlife and wilderness of the great continent. While not navigating icebergs and Zodiacs, he enjoys exploring on two wheels and has done cycling trips on four continents so far. He is now eagerly awaiting his next Exodus expedition but in the meantime, he is available to answer any questions you might have. So, whether you’re setting your sights on a cycling adventure or craving the seclusion of the icy waters of the Arctic, he’s here to help.
