Alex joined the ministry in 2003, serving first as the Manager of Innovation and Communication for the Sequoia Hospital Foundation in Redwood City, California before transitioning to the CommonSpirit Health national philanthropy office. In his current role he enjoys helping to amplify stories of donor partnership and unique and impactful programs made possible through philanthropic investment across the system.

A northern California native, Alex received his bachelor of fine arts degree in graphic design from the University of the Pacific. After a decade with a leading branding and packaging design firm working with top consumer brands, he changed directions and sought work with social significance and community impact. As both an employee and a patient of CommonSpirit's facilities, he has witnessed firsthand the difference our work makes and knows that he is in the right place.

Alex is a member of the California Advancement Researchers Association and the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy and has been honored to present at conferences on multiple occasions. Outside of work, Alex is the co-founder of a small-batch confection company with its own philanthropic focus.
