Born and raised in Toronto from East York to Scarborough to Greektown. Alex is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Purple Belt who found martial arts accidentally. After accompanying his little cousin to do a trial at a martial arts academy he ended up just continuing to show up. You can find Alex training in some local gyms around the city and he will always be happy to talk Jiu-Jitsu.

Outside of Jiu-Jitsu Alex works for one of the large 5 banks in operations and occasionally can be found slinging drinks at a bar downtown.
