Alex discovered his passion for woodworking and furniture while captaining the croquet team at St. John’s College in Annapolis, Maryland. The team’s tradition of using beautiful, handcrafted, wooden mallets sparked his desire to create his own. This enthusiasm eventually led him to attend the renowned Williams & Cleal furniture school in England, where he honed his skills and developed his unique design aesthetic.
On returning to America, he established his own studio in Westhampton Beach, New York, specializing in custom-designed furniture and products. Alex’s designs are inspired by the natural beauty of his surroundings — from the picturesque landscapes of England’s West Country to the Hamptons’ dunes to the jungles of Costa Rica to the cityscapes of New York, London, and Paris.
