About Alex

Former investment banker turned PE investor with broad experience along the investment spectrum (public and private). Can help you learn everything you could want to know about alternative/private investing (both at the earliest of stages and late stages / traditional buyout). Have a major network I love to plug each of my life coachees into! Born and raised outside Chicago, spent six years in Austin, TX and now settled with my family in Charlotte, NC for the long-term. Look forward to partnering up, learning from each other and collaborating to help you accomplish your goals. Let's grow our collective knowledge and wealth together!

Why do I coach?

My goal in life is to give back through education and career inspiration / coaching. I’m always willing to connect with those interested in learning more about the investment banking, private equity / private credit spaces or entrepreneurship / venture capital spaces. I specifically cover the lower/middle market that has endless stories that may be applicable to your own journey of discerning how to find meaningful work and life a great life. I have been fortunate to have a number of high quality coaches in my life that inspired me into coaching throughout my own educational journey. As an ND graduate, I learned the importance of giving back and "asking more of business". As a Kellogg graduate, my DNA has been programmed to give "high impact, low ego" support to each of my coachees. Those that purchase coaching packages from me will be included in my growing network over the long-term. Look forward to working together to help you accomplish your goals!
