What matters to you, matters to me.
Alex was born and raised in Greenville, North Carolina, and grew up taking family trips to the Wilmington area. He attended NC State University and graduated with a BS in Finance. While at NC State, he was very involved with Ducks Unlimited including two years served as the chapter president. After graduation he was determined to see more of the world, moving to St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
He spent the next few years working as a bartender and honing a woodworking passion as a boat builder. That experience steered him in to becoming a mate on multiple charter boats which led to furthering his education and getting his 100-ton Captain’s License. His plans to continue a career as charter boat captain were derailed on September 6th, 2017, when Hurricane Irma, the largest recorded hurricane in Atlantic history, passed directly over St. John devastating the Virgin Islands. Alex’s house was one of the many homes destroyed in the storm. During the massive cleanup and rebuilding of the island, Alex formed a demolition company that worked on over 70 properties, mitigating mold and water damage.
Alex left the islands to pursue another love of his, live music. He moved to Boulder, Colorado, where he worked at two live music venues and also a company that did set design for music festivals. He loved the music industry and the snowboarding but the pull to return to the coast of NC and set down roots was too strong. He wanted to be closer to family and friends and Wilmington was just the place to be. When not working, Alex loves being on the water, board sports, and spending time with his recently adopted German Shepherd, Mack. Surrounded and supported by the unbelievably qualified Keith Beatty Team, Alex looks forward to assisting customers and friends with any of their real estate needs.
