Alex is a maker...A person who likes to tinker. He is “an amateur graphic artist with a little talent, an amateur electronics hobbyist with very little talent, and an amateur woodworker with almost no talent.” He usually spends his efforts making gifts for friends and family. Some of his recent projects include a set of custom drink coasters, a hand carved beer tap handle with an embedded chalk board, and a classic video game system made out of cardboard and a credit card sized computer. Because of this, Alex loves Christmas (not, as many assume, because he looks remarkably like a young Santa Claus).
Alex also loves working on and caring for his nearly 100-year-old home. His first major project was to have it weatherized and insulated, reducing its load by over two thirds! Of course, once that project was completed, it was time to replace the HVAC system. Working with one of Wrightsoft’s customers, he designed a system suited to the requirements of his small home. The furnace needed was special-ordered from Texas, because “nobody in New England needs a 40,000btuh furnace”. Alex is used to breaking the mold, and it works perfectly. He is proud to say he is able to keep the thermostat at 72° all summer and still be comfortable (even though he would keep it at 60° if it weren’t such a bad idea). But Alex does get to keep the temperature at a frigid 60° all winter unless he has company. The picture above is of Alex “after a fun hike in a little snowstorm.” We have to wonder about his uniqueness sometimes. Yet it seems this quality is just one of the many reasons our customers regularly give his training classes 5 star ratings. His classes are never boring or lacking in insight.
