As an engineer, Alex can understand and adapt to the intricacies of almost any weapons system. “I like to shoot, because I like the mechanics of it,” he says. “It’s like a big puzzle.” His passion for shooting runs so deep that his oldest daughter is named after Annie Oakley. A country boy at heart, Alex lives with his family out in the woods and has never seen a single episode of Top Shot, because they don’t have cable. In Season 3, he just missed making the finale when he was eliminated in the “Pull Back” challenge. Alex still has faith that he’ll shine, though. He believes his ROTC background and hunting experience give him an edge over the competition. Post-Top Shot, Alex has competed in a 3-Gun match, became a 4H-shooting instructor and started engineering gun ranges.
