I enjoy putting myself in the role of the user and asking, “What would I want? What would I not want? Does this make sense?”

Let’s face it, content is complicated. With varying forms and functions— woven together on websites of all sizes and platforms—it can quickly become a tangled web of words. Luckily for CHIEF and for our clients, Alex has a passion for taming the content beast. As CHIEF’s Technical Content Strategist, he works directly with clients to understand their long-term vision for their content, and then translates it into content type definitions and determines migration directions. Alex then works with the Development team to create workflow and governance documents that serve as “how-to” guides for website maintenance —giving clients and site administrators the confidence they need to manage content long-term. Because what’s a complex content puzzle to some, is a piece of cake to Alex. Did somebody say cake…

Alex holds a BS in Visual and Media Arts from Emerson College.
