In college, Alex bounced around several fields of study trying to find what felt right. He graduated from Virginia Tech in 2012 with a Bachelor's degree in Consumer Studies. It was soon after that he realized he could take his passion for IT and pursue a career. Having always been the "computer guy" for friends and family, it seemed like a natural fit.
Immediately upon graduation, Alex returned to his hometown of Wytheville. Soon after, he joined Hodges, Jones & Mabry, P.C. to work as their in-house IT Specialist. While there, he managed the system and network administration for the business and provided technical support for employees.
Alex joined New River Computing in July of 2015 with 3 years of work experience under his belt. He is excited for the opportunity to assist a larger number of clients while continuing to grow within the IT field. Returning to Blacksburg was a big bonus to Alex as he really enjoys the area. The close proximity to the Appalachian Trail makes great access for hiking or backpacking during free time.
