“A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.” - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Alex has worked for the past 14 years to promote safety and leadership for young people in Cuyahoga County, OH—previously as Senior Director of Educational Services at Cleveland Rape Crisis Center for more than a decade and now with the MyCom Cleveland intermediary team.  He has presented training programs for teachers, K-12 students, students in higher ed, service members in the US Air Force and Coast Guard, and for parents.  Social Emotional Learning marries two of Alex’s passions—educating about emotional intelligence (EQ) and supporting youth as leaders.  Alex has an MBA with a concentration on Organizational Development and Leadership from The Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University and is proud alum of The College of William and Mary in Virginia.  He is a husband and the father of two young children, with whom he practices Conscious Discipline.


  • “MyCom Youth Development Initiative aims to engage via education, such amazing out-of-school opportunities as they recognize that youth who are bullied are more likely to feel disconnected from school."
    Curtis Benjamin
  • "MyCom has extended hundreds of youth exceptional opportunities to grow, expand their knowledge and express their voice in so many ways. I can honestly say that the youth are not the only ones who are learning, growing and having wonderful exposure opportunities. This adult is a beneficiary of countless blessing as well."

    MyCom Coordinator
