Top 5 Skills: Client Communications, Collaboration, SEO Copywriting, Editing, High-Stakes Negotiation
Something about me that might surprise you: I once had a legitimate wizard-length beard.
Hey! My name is Alex and I’m part of the Sales & Account Strategy team here at Nu! I’m also our liaison with the Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce. Most of my background is in creative writing, publication, and editing, but I’ve also worked jobs waaay outside of that spectrum, including a gym, a welding shop, and an airbrush tattoo stand in Myrtle Beach. I enjoy working with people on creative projects of all shapes and sizes, whether we’re tinkering with a website, finding that perfect word to tell a story, or deconstructing a truck engine (just don’t ask me to put it back together!)
I received a Bachelor’s degree in English / Creative Writing from Winthrop University, where I was the Editor-in-Chief of the annual student literary & art magazine, and a Master’s degree from Wake Forest. During grad school, I fell in love with Winston-Salem and decided to stay for a while with my wife and our two cats, Sitso and Tiny.
Outside of work, you may see me around town checking out a show at The Ramkat or Monstercade, catching a movie at a/perture, or thrifting to add to my modest collection of vinyl records and paisley shirts. I’m also a big fan of North Carolina vineyards and Winston-Salem’s local breweries. I realize this makes it sound like I’m a social butterfly, but I’m really more of a stay-at-home (cat) dad who likes to play videos games, read books, and noodle around with guitars and effects pedals.
We’re passionate about what we do and dedicated to your success!
