In the midst of studying a design degree at university, Alex spent his spare time running a video game podcast and blog, this paired with his passion for mobile helped propel him into the world of mobile tech journalism.

A year on and he's already spent time meeting and greeting key players in the mobile world working under GSMArena, kicked off his new position at Recombu by interviewing James May and is already trying to think of ways to weave his passions for gaming and design into his work.

He also wants an old Mini Cooper and one day hopes to grow a handlebar moustache.
