Spurred by his father’s passion for history, Alex studied to become an Antiquarian, focusing on Roman history and culture, before moving to Paris to work for two years in the Louvre. He moved to Rome and took a break from the academic world to work in the film industry, before finally taking on the role of a historical consultant and adviser, contributing to over 20 different Documentaries, TV shows and movies. His expertise have been requested by such noted figures such as Bill and Melinda Gates, katie Couric and Dianne Sawyer and appeared on the History, Discovery and National Geographic channel.
