Alex immigrated from the former Soviet Union at the age of 7. His family settled down in Seattle and since then he has lived all over Washington State. In 2009, he graduated from Western Washington University with a BA in Marketing and shortly after began his career in Digital Marketing. Alex has been employed by Marchex, Cobalt, and Microsoft and has become an expert in SEM and account management. He has developed relationships with hundreds of SMB clients and built, managed, and optimized their advertising in Google Adwords and the Bing Ads Network.
Alex has an insatiable thirst for adventure. He has spent over 2 years backpacking throughout New Zealand, Southeast Asia, and India. New Zealand’s incredible natural beauty drew him there for over 9 months. He purchased a camper van with his girlfriend and set off to every corner of New Zealand. They spent their time hiking, camping, living, and learning on organic farms and working in the wine regions. Tropical weather, diving, and the exotic cuisine brought Alex to Southeast Asia. It took him no time to fall in love with this part of the world and he managed to thoroughly explore all 10 countries that make up the region. Ready for a challenge, Alex took off on a solo mission to India. He spent over two months immersed in the colorful culture and traversing the breathtaking Himalayas. He discovered a world of chaos and beauty that is like no other.
