Alex is a student at UW-Milwauee and lives on Milwaukee's East Side. When he's not working at, he writes for the UWM Post sports section and plays devil's advocate to a fault in conversation.

Alex strongly believes that if the reason not to change is, "because we've always done it this way," then change is almost certainly necessary.

In Alex' free time he enjoys catching a movie at the Oriental or iPic, video games, creating arbitrary top-five lists, lobbying President Obama to follow-back via Twitter, messing with Chairman Meow (the resident apartment cat) and continuing his crusade to have Yuengling Lager brought to Wisconsin.

After graduating with degrees in marketing and journalism, Alex plans to continue writing and enjoying all of the adventures that life has to offer. If you see him around, stop and say "malarkey," as he never expects anyone to read these bios ... so he'll probably be surprised.

 Cowboys & Aliens shows what a summer movie should be
 There's something about European actors doing American accents, good or bad, that always pulls me in. Hugh Laurie on "House M.D." was first, Dominic West surprised me with his terrible-at-first Baltimore accent in "The Wire" and now Daniel Craig pulls it off without doing too much of a John Wayne impression in "Cowboys & Aliens."
