My bio from a recent publication:

A native Oregonian, he is currently the general manager of the business his grandfather founded, a small family-owned outdoor store. His other pursuits include cooking, gardening, and railfanning, and he is an avid amateur watercolorist. Alexander also writes fiction, and is currently at work on a novel."
