Alex joined the H. E. Butt Foundation in 2020 as Senior Director of Outdoor School. After spending 8+ years serving students in Title I schools, he has a passion for expanding access to the outdoors for youth in our region.
Alex’s love for the outdoors was ignited as a summer camp counselor in New Hampshire where he spent each of his collegiate summers developing life-long bonds with campers and counselors. His experience as a camp counselor allowed him to witness the transformative power nature has on youth development. After graduating from Ohio Wesleyan University, Alex served as a Teach For America corps member in the Rio Grande Valley and later became a leadership development coach with Teach for America San Antonio. These experiences helped him understand the “adventure gap” in outdoor programming for youth, specifically in urban San Antonio.
