Alex moved down to Brixham with Lucy in 2014; previously they were based in Milton Keynes (but he is really a northerner). He enjoys wearing shorts every day and being able to walk along the coast path, and strangely doesn’t miss the roundabouts and concrete cows.
Alex graduated as a chemical engineer and worked for seven years as an improvement consultant helping mostly industrial companies to make their processes faster, more efficient or less wasteful. This took him to varied locations around the UK, Australia, Germany, Holland and Belgium with clients ranging from chemical plants to hospitals. With Lucy he decided to completely change his lifestyle by moving down to Devon and being based in the same place each week. The Guardhouse offered the perfect opportunity at the right time.
In the café Alex is responsible for keeping out of everyone’s way as much as possible so that they can get on with their amazing work without him causing trouble. He has an unhealthy love of spreadsheets.
In 2017 baby Rosalie came along, and was subsequently joined by Tilly and Rafe. Strangely Alex doesn’t seem to get much time to himself any more.
