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.

When you need to learn more about coworking, communities & collaboration, you start to notice that it’s difficult find signal amongst the noise. There’s a lot of punditry and opinion among a mixed set of industries, from marketing & social media, to online and offline communities, to civic & economic growth, to urban development & more. It’s a mess!

Instead of having to stumble around in the dark, I’ve long wished for a place to go to find essays, books, videos, and even academic source about community building, design thinking, collaboration, business, & leadership.

Below is my version of resource that I’ve compiled for myself over the years, which I’m happy to share with you for free.
