Alex now lives in Tahoe City, California, and he provides classroom and online-based training regularly for Yahoo, eBay, PayPal, and Stanford University, and other companies across the country.

When Alex isn't wired into code or in front of a classroom, you can find him somewhere in the Sierra Nevada backcountry on a chairlift, on the trail, or at the summit.
