Hey, my name is Alex! I'm an Engineering Physics student at the University of British Columbia. When I'm not doing my homework you can find me playing in the mountains, improvising at my piano, or writing down my thoughts.
Over Christmas I spent 4 days in the mountains of Kaslo BC with my friend Neil. It was among the best skiing of my life. Some of this terrain has likely never been skied before.
Pay more attention to interesting lighting. The glow of a single candle that illuminates even the darkest of rooms. Or beams of sunlight through the canopy. Light gives life to every being on the planet. It defines the beauty of every mountain, valley, and cove. It stimulates the mind—how it diffuses through a room or scatters through a raindrop into all the colours of the rainbow. First light on the mountains marks the start of a clear and beautiful day.

This site was built from scratch over countless hours to serve as a replacement for social media. While I'm very proud of it, I do miss the community of Instagram. Therefore, if you find anything here interesting or simply want to say hi, please send me a message. I'd be delighted to hear from you—there's nothing I enjoy more than meeting new people.
