Alex is hands down one of the most creative, talented, professional, and kind people I’ve ever worked with. His ability to ALWAYS come up with the perfect guitar part with the perfect tone blows me away. The man can do it all, from shredding your face off to smooth jazzy chords to lush ambient textures. Most importantly Alex is a great guy and a joy to work with. GO HIRE HIM!
