Alex was born in Soviet Latvia. Since childhood he has loved to build and create, leading him to a love for architecture. As a teenager, Alex was introduced to his first CAD software where he learned different building designs and layouts. He then decided his passions could be combined into a career as a 3D artist. He moved to the UK where he met his wonderful wife, Natasha, and attended Herefordshire University to study 3D animation and Game Art. He was torn between doing work in the VFX or gaming industry until the opportunity to work for Blitz Games Studio presented itself, his first job in the industry. He then got an amazing offer to work for Microsoft Game Studios which led him to Rare and Lionhead Studios where he currently works with an amazing team of people. He is currently working on the next installment in the Fable series.
