The Selfie Expert
He is a graduate of the University of Texas where he graduated with Honors in Bio-medical Sciences, with Nutrition and Chemistry. Before beginning his doctoral studies he embarked on conquering his lifelong dream of traveling the world in the most adventurous and amazing way possible by motorbike, committed to documenting his adventures while raising awareness/funds for charitable causes. He initially sold everything he had at the beginning of his journey, including his car, TV and clothes and departed his hometown of El Paso Texas with nothing to return to, living only out of his motorcycle for the next 3 years. His story is as incredible as it is inspirational, unique, and motivational. He endeavored to work directly with local charities and the less fortunate children of the world in each of the 22+ Latin American countries he visited, to inspire others to do the same in their own way.
He faced life endangering situations like being stranded for 4 days without food and broken motorcycle in the most remote part of the Patagonia, bureaucratic corruption that got him arrested/detained various times in Central America and the Middle East, to being robbed in intense crime stricken areas, dealing with natural disasters that wiped out entire villages and roads, to sleeping in parking lots/next to rivers with malaria infested mosquitoes, running out of money only 200 miles from the tip of the continent, and even dealing with the suicide of a fellow travel companion while on the road, all while raising funds internationally for charity from sponsors and individuals following his journey online.
Alex currently runs the only motorcycle travel consulting business in the world for travel in Latin America where he occasionally runs tours on consults with clients. www.YourExpeditionSouth.com
