Originally a bartender in Death & Co’s early days, Alex became an owner in 2010. Since then, he has co-formed various businesses in partnership with David Kaplan and Devon Tarby, including the global hospitality consulting company, Propriertors LLC, as well as the notable cocktail bars Nitecap, Honeycut, The Normandie Club, The Walker Inn, and Death & Co Denver. In the process, Alex has trained hundreds of bartenders, designed dozens of bars, and along the way, has fallen deeply in love with the process of turning the idea of a bar into a reality. Alex focuses primarily on company operations, planning, and logistics, process improvement, design, and systems. Passionate about education, he is a regular speaker at industry conferences and specialized events, as well as a contributor to various publications as a writer and expert commentator. Alex is the co-author of Death & Co: Modern Classic Cocktails, as well as the James Beard and Spirited Award-winning book, Cocktail Codex: Origins, Fundamentals, Formulas. Alex lives in Portland, Maine with his husband, Andrew.
