With extensive experience in business and marketing strategy, e-commerce and website design, he brings balance of creative and technical expertise to both client projects and NB’s internal business development activities.
When not in the office, Alex can usually be found crafting his homebrew ales and bread-baking skills or strumming a guitar to a background of electronic beats from his croft base in the South mainland.
