Hi, I'm Alex. I have been working in the podcasting and audio storytelling industry for the past 9 years. I got my start in podcasting by launching an independent studio where I edited, produced, and distributed podcasts for brands and hosts across the world.
This work led to my recruitment as Head of Podcasts at Yahoo Finance / Verizon Media. After years of success and building the network up to millions of annual listeners, I decided to leave it all to pursue my real passion: helping creators thrive.
This is why I started this podcast. To help creators see what is possible in life, and give a helpful resource to take action on it.
Outside of Work
When I am not doing that I love to read, lift weights, and watch the Lakers dominate.
