Hometown: Norris, TN
Years of Experience: 10
Home River: Pigeon
From Norris, Tennessee, Alex has been kayaking for most of his life—he learned to roll at age 12! He has 10 years of experience, starting as a guide on the French Broad River. He's known as being great with kids, so the Pigeon River is a perfect fit.
One of his most notable achievements is being a contributing designer of the 2013 ICF Canoe Freestyle World Cup Wave, found on the Pigeon River. Besides impressive river experience, Alex is also a registered nurse, having received a BS in Nursing from Eastern Tennessee State University. His extracurricular activities are all "trick" based: freestyle kayaking, skateboarding and even juggling and yo-yos.

Our guide Alex, ROCKS! We were extremely impressed with his professional, yet FUN, personality. He was very knowledgable about the history of the surrounding area. He also expressed a happy, helpful attitude throughout our whole rafting experience, especially with our first-timer, 9 years old daughter. She had a blast. Thank you Alex for making our family experience the best!
