Alex joined Pendant in June, 2022 as a Fullstack Developer, helping to continue the development of the Revolution Street WXS. Alex’s favorite part of the job so far is creating easy-to-use interfaces that look pretty, which means he’s a great fit. He especially enjoys the people at Pendant for their sense of humor and how much fun it is to be around his teammates.
Born in Pembroke Pines, Florida, Alex actually grew up in Underhill, Vermont. He has since returned close to his origins as he now resides in Tallahassee, Florida.
Alex develops websites and likes coding for fun. He likes designing web apps that he ends up using himself, including one he named “Did It Flop”, which he is currently rebuilding. He says he had a serious hacker phase in middle school and expected to become a professional Pentester. He instead landed at Pendant, which probably saved him from being taken hostage by an evil villain that would then give him 5 minutes to hack into a government system with a gun to his head. You can thank Pendant for avoiding that fate, Alex!
As for culture, Alex especially enjoyed the movie “Joker” for its character development and willingness to deviate from the comic book story line. Alex professes no great affection for comics, but is a big fan of the Gotham universe for the games and movies.
Alex isn’t into sports much, which potentially explains his disastrous choice of the Yankees as his favorite team. We obviously need to work on that.
Al Sneed, the owner of Sneed’s Feed and Seed, is Alex’s favorite Simpsons character, mainly because of the evolution of Sneed’s name into a meme. You’ll have to look it up if you’re curious, because it’s too complicated to explain in this limited space (but funny).
Two great reasons Alex is a great fit for the software team are that he loves Peru’s Chicken in Havre de Grace, just like Sai, and he has a girlfriend from India (Rahavee), just like Sai…
Oh wait, that second one isn’t quite true. Yet.
Finally, Alex would like you all to know that at Pendant we actually live according to our Core Values. He’s just not aware that we save that living the Core Values thing only for when he visits the home office. We’d like to hang onto him for a while!
