Originally from Colorado, USA, Alex moved to Australia in 2015 and very quickly settled into Wollongong. Hailing from Fort Collins, Colorado; a place vastly different to the Illawarra, Alex grew up in the highest elevated state in the US amongst the mountains and the snow. Activities outdoors, camping, skiing and enjoying Colorado’s obsession with craft beer are high up on Alex’s passions for her hometown.
