Alex has traveled abroad and has been to the US (mainly – WA, CA, NV, FL, NJ, and NY), the Middle East (Oman and Turkey), and a number of Asian countries. He’s inspired by people and businesses that do preposterous things in spite of obvious flaws. Something about him that most people would find surprising is that he is a Shotokan Karate black belt holder and learned this martial arts form in Muscat, Oman. His all-time favorite quote is, “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” – Milton Berle
