About Me

Hi, I’m Alex.

I build communities, started one of the longest running coworking communities in the world, write a crapload of words every day, tweet a little too much, coach people to be the best version of themselves possible, can't stop learning new things, and do my very best not to take myself too seriously.

I have one goal: to fill the world with truly excellent collaborators so we can all work together, better.

Because let's be honest...most of us aren't very good at it.

Alex’s Community Building Archives

I’ve been writing on this blog since 2006. In the land of internet things, that’s a pretty long time.

In the land of coworking, that’s pretty close to the time of the “big bang” that brought coworking to life.

But this blog, like me, wasn’t always as focused on coworking and community building. If you scroll all the way to the bottom of this archive, you’ll find that I was writing about web development tips and tricks, along with other random observations from my life.

This archive bares all

So, if you’re feeling particularly voyeuristic, you can go back in time and see what I was thinking about before I even started building the Indy Hall community. You can see in-progress thoughts come to life, and even get a sense of how my own understanding of community evolved over time.

Just watch out for sharp edges – the vast majority of these archives are raw and unedited!
