"Those who have a 'why' to live, can bear with almost any 'how'."

Alexander is a Master of Social Work student at Boise State University. This past summer, he finished his graduate placement with St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center. This year (his final year of graduate school), he will work with the veteran community at the Boise VA Medical Center. Before attending Boise State University, Alexander worked with students on the Autism Spectrum for a year and a half. Afterwards, he lived in Japan for four years, teaching English to junior high school students in one of Japan's smallest cities. Despite his short time there, he has continued to develop numerous lifelong relationships with teachers, students and members of the community. Currently, one of Alexander's passions is his research into cutting edge therapeutic interventions that use emerging technologies to treat PTSD. He is also interested in working with schools to develop support systems that can effectively increase retention of gifted students and is working with other students to develop a set of guidelines for the growth of Boise State University's makerspace culture. When he is not studying, Alexander can be found playing with his Corgi, studying Japanese, reading Science Fiction or playing video games with his wife.
