Alex was raised in Denmark and spent much of his childhood exploring the many natural areas from Walpole to Esperance. In 2004 he completed high school in Albany and relocated to Perth to attend university and further his career.
Alex is cognisant of the complex environmental, social and economic issues that are of relevance to South Coast NRM and its members. As a dedicated advocate of sustainable agriculture and climate change resilience, he sees both of these objectives at the forefront of South Coast NRM.
In his current employment, Alex works collaboratively with community groups, land developers, indigenous leaders and conservation groups and presents projects to community forums on environmental issues. He has a strong understanding of strategic and statutory planning in Western Australia and has built a network of planning experts in government and the private sector that he regularly share ideas and information with.
Alex has nearly 10 years of practical experience in conservation, natural resource management, sustainable development, biosecurity, urban planning and climate change resilience. His current studies through the University of Queensland have broadened his scope of expertise across a number of areas including protected area management, community-based conservation practices and carbon management. He views natural resource management as a mechanism by which sustainable development and sustainable economic growth should be achieved.
