A native of Connecticut and University of Rhode Island alum, Alex exudes the characteristics instilled at SquadLocker.  

 

What three traits define you?

ALEX: Caring, Determined, and Independent.

 

Why did you join SquadLocker?

ALEX: I joined because I enjoyed the collaboration among different departments. The biggest reason for joining was that SquadLocker offered me a great opportunity to get out of my comfort zone.

 

What is your proudest moment at SquadLocker?

ALEX: I would definitely say my proudest moment at SquadLocker is when I identified an area of the business that was lacking any initiatives, then presented a solution to key stakeholders. That area of the business is now my current job, Builder Engagement.

Now for the fun part. Who is your favorite sports team?

ALEX: The Mighty Ducks.

 

What is your greatest fear?

ALEX: Failure.

 

Where is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?

ALEX: Italy, specifically Florence. I enjoyed the culture and history. Basically it was like stepping into another era.

 

Any favorite line from a movie?

ALEX: "Safety never takes a holiday." (Paul Blart Mall Cop)

If you could be anyone from any time period, fictional or not, who would it be and why?
ALEX: I would be Hermoine Granger because she is kind, intuitive, warm-hearted, and persistent.

 

What is a realistic ability you wish you had?

ALEX: Sing

 

What TV show/movie are you ashamed to admit you love?

ALEX: The Bachelor

 

If you could only drink one beer for the rest of your life, what would it be?

ALEX: Lagunitas Little Sumpin’ IPA

If you were an animal what would you be? 
ALEX: Stuffed Animal, but not taxidermy, a plush one.

 

Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us.

ALEX: I was in Academic Decathlon in high school.

 

Lastly, what’s one thing you couldn’t live without?

ALEX: My dog
