Alex grew up away from the sea in the rural UK but has been drawn towards the ocean since a young age. Having graduated from the University of Southampton with an MSci in Marine Biology, he is joining the AQ team for the first time. As a PADI Instructor he has worked across the globe from the cold murky lakes of the UK through to the tropics of Indonesia via the Mediterranean and Indian Ocean. He is passionate about showing others the underwater world and inspiring them into conservation and the marine sciences. During his free time Alex loves to rock climb and run ultra-marathons as a way of exploring new areas.
