There are many outlets to express creativity. While Alex has always been drawn to explore all of these outlets, his natural talents always circled back to doing so visually. Being innately creative with a very analytical approach to any project it became apparent that his skillset was uniquely curated for the world of design, there was never really an alternative career avenue for Alex. Out of the gates upon graduating from Colorado State University he took every opportunity he could to expand his portfolio and experience through freelance work with clients ranging from Natural Chefs to Opticians to a range of local bands in the Fort Collins Area. It eventually came time to shift into high gear and make the move to Denver. This booming ecosystem of bold, progressive culture continually inspires him to propel his skills and become a holistic, multifaceted professional. Alex sees every new project as an opportunity to re invest his efforts back into our thriving, entrepreneurial city.

What does Social Capital mean to you?
Social Capital is the value of a person or entities’ reputability amongst it’s peers, colleagues, clients and consumers attained by genuine display of integrity and pride.
How do you live and display social capital in your daily life?
By making a conscious effort to let someone know they are being heard when expressing their needs weather they pertain to a particular project or life in general. I have always been a very observant individual and gauge all perspectives. Above all I never undermine the importance of believing in every single person who has the courage to believe in themselves and what they are doing, they will more than likely be a positive acquaintance for someone in my network.
How would you like to see Social Capital implemented more in our society?
By eradicating the bullshit. It seems that as a society, we have grown accustomed to being skeptical of the legitimacy of other people and businesses. This is why it is important to praise those that genuinely emphasize being the best they can at what they do while positively impacting those around them where they can.
Why is our mission and your contribution to Social Capital Agency so important to you?
It is my job to harness one’s message and translate it visually in a way that will resonate with the right audience in the right light. I aim to use my skills and talents to help propel those exceptional people and businesses to a platform where they can act as examples to those like them as well as mutually benefiting one another.
What’s the one brand you’d want to help build their social capital more and why?
I would love to help ‘Mountain Bike Project’ build their Social Capital. ‘MTB Project’ is an organization / mobile app that informs riders of trail maps, conditions and news. They are appealing to me in regards to social capital for their emphasis on the community of mountain bikers and bringing together clubs and groups for trail maintenance and just riding together.
