Hi, I'm Alex

Design. Startups. Venture Capital.


Most think of me as a strategist, but I'm a product guy at heart. I’ve designed top notch user interfaces, invented products, managed teams and won pitches. I can ideate and produce. Above all, I try to help brands make the most of this ever changing world.


I currently head special projects at Canada’s largest seed stage venture fund. My days are spent devising tools that change the way we work, advising portfolio companies on product matters and finding better ways to support entrepreneurs. Prior to that, I helped world class brands innovate at Sid Lee. During my time there I steered critical work for companies like Adidas, Absolut, Intel and Dewars. I also helped the agency figure out how to profit from change. Right before, I helped startups scale at Techstars and co-founded TEDxMontreal.


I speak about design, startups and organizational transformation at events and universities alike. I also judge hackathons from time to time. If you’d like to have me at your shindig, let's chat.


I share my thoughts and musings on Twitter. I resort to blogging or Medium when 140 characters aren’t enough. I connect with like-minded folks on Linkedin. And I post carefully crafted pixels on Dribbble.

If you’d like to chat, please drop me a line. Go on. Do it. I don't bite.
