Alex has taught percussion and visual at a number of Colorado high schools, including Lakewood High School, Alameda High School, Mountain Range High School, Ralston Valley High School, and Overland High School. He was the program coordinator for the Evergreen High School marching band in 2012 and 2013, and is currently on staff at Conifer High School.

Alex has been an educator in Colorado for over fourteen years and has been fortunate enough to teach visual in DCI for the last eight years.

Alex is very excited to return to The Cadets in 2018. Alex would like to thank all the amazing educators, administrators, volunteers and everyone along the way for all their support and dedication.
