Alex is excited to be back in New Mexico after a decade of land conservation and stewardship work in the Northeast. Prior to joining NMLC, he worked with land trusts, the National Park Service, and a forestry consulting company specializing in prescribed fire. As a wildland firefighter on an interagency hand crew, Alex has been on multiple wildfire assignments in the Rocky Mountains.
Alex has a bachelor’s degree in Environmental, Earth, and Ocean Sciences from the University of Massachusetts, where he often explored Boston Harbor in a kayak. He also completed a master’s degree program in Sustainability and Environmental Management at Harvard University. Returning to New Mexico brings Alex closer to one of his preferred foods, green chile.
