Alex grew up in Boston, MA, where both his parents were physicians. Alex was very good at school, and categorized in the nerdy crowd. Following the family tradition, medicine attracted him, but he wanted a sharper edge, something that gave him a true sense of emergency.
After this board certified family physician completed his residency in Family Medicine at Madigan Army Medical Center in Fort Lewis, Washington, he volunteered for a humanitarian assistance mission to Eritrea, where he first came into contact with the Ghosts. Impressed by their steely will, he resolved to one-day work at their side. Only after he underwent rigorous training with the 36th Area Support Medical Company (Airborne) and did a tour of duty in Asia did he finally land the toughest assignment any field medic can undertake: going into battle with The Ghosts. He became good friends with fellow Ghost John Hume.

Alex never grew past his geeky look, which makes him an easy target for jokes. He tries to compensate by being funnier, and he's always the first to crack a joke.
