Alex in a central comandante in our league of developers. He's taken on some of the toughest and more perplexing challengers out there, and with a steely eye and a repertoire of coding knowledge, he's developed some of our most innovative solutions. With a true knack for taking complex problems and reducing them to their simplest key form, there are few development problems that would make Alex hesitate.
But web development isn't his entire life. After work, Alex is a marathon runner, adventurer and Walking Dead enthusiast (the comics, of course).

Let's get one thing clear: social media matters. Unfortunately, like many perfectly valid pursuits undermined by the high ratio of teenagers doing them (okay, not many), social media is often an afterthought--if it isn't shrugged off entirely. From a business perspective, it deserves to be taken seriously. And by "seriously," we mean that it is worthy of effort and intention, not that it has to be (or should be, in any manner) approached with the same dry ploys of direct mail marketing or the stale sincerity of the decade-old spam collecting cyberdust in unread email folders.
But even those who embrace social media often overlook one very important element--the user experience. Social media is an organic, interaction-based organism. Without an effort to intentionally include social media into a comprehensive web initiative from the ground up, it will suffer. So how exactly does user experience fit in with social media?
