Alex was born and grew up in one of the oldest and most historic cities in the country (Quincy, MA).
Alex first had his own encounter with the unknown at the young age of 12. He has been interested and trying to learn more about and search for Cryptids ever since.
Alone, hiking out of the White Mountains of New Hampshire on a cold winter day in 1973, Alex had an encounter that changed his life forever. What happened is a story he will never forget and has told many times over the airwaves and in print (Phoenix Magazine, Oct 2009). Somewhere between towns of Lincoln and Pittsburg with 3 small dogs in tow, Alex was followed for over two hours by something that stayed just out of view but within earshot of heavy footfalls and branches being snapped. For a distance of over 2 miles Alex played cat and mouse with something that seemed both intelligent and curious.
Alex moved to Arizona in 2004 where he continued his interest in paranormal activities and soon founded the Arizona Cryptozoological Research Organization. Originally a small group of researchers based primarily in Arizona, the AZCRO now has members from not only the United States, but beyond as well. Alex has been called Arizona’s leading cryptozoologist (Shanna Hogan, Times Publications). Alex and the AZCRO Team have searched throughout the Southwest for giant bats, giant birds, wild cats and other more mysterious creatures such as Bigfoot, El Chupacabras and the Onza.
