Born in a depraved area of Manchester, England, Alex grew up for a few short years before his parents and his older brother moved to Brisbane, Australia. His father worked as an aerospace engineer on a short work visa.
Alex grew up in a relatively ordinary neighbourhood and attended school with slightly above average grades. He graduated in 2014 and began studying Visual Arts and Networking at university where he stayed until he completed a diploma in Networking in 2015 and went onto his senior year in Visual Arts in 2016. Struggling with his degree and his overall career he chose to defer his course by 12 months and took a gap year to find good work around computers and systems on cargo ships and transports. He gained a small job as a Technical Specialist on the Southern Moana where he stayed until the current day.
