Alex was one of those kids who was always curious about how things worked around him and why things happened the way they did in nature. For that reason, he enjoyed very much science courses in school. Math was not a particularly hard or easy subject for him, but he soon realized that Math was such a formidable tool to help to understand all the interesting things he learned in science courses. This motivation allowed him to excel at Math and, later in life, to obtain a Bsc in Electrical Engineering. He is happy to share this motivation and show students with real life examples that Math is an integral part of our lives. When he is not doing Math or busy with work and school, he likes to spend his spare time in one of his hobbies which include improv theater, chess, learning languages, karaoke, and more.
