Hailing from the suburban streets of South London, Alex made the switch to Berlin in 2013 to prolong an ailing career in academia. Unsurprisingly, that didn’t last long.

When not behind the keyboard, you’ll find him lurking in one of the city’s many fine hostelries sipping an ice-cold Schultheiss.
