I’m Alex, a designer based in New York City.

I lead teams of designers who unravel and frame complexity, to help people accomplish their goals and collective purposes, and to help businesses innovate and grow. For ten years, I was a professor of design and technology at Carnegie Mellon University. I’ve lived, taught, and given talks around the world.
