Alex The Writer - Joslyn Kilborn Photography-3.jpg


I'm a communications specialist and community builder based in the Comox Valley, British Columbia.​​

I was raised here, on the unceded traditional territory of the Pentlach, Eiksan and K'ómoks Peoples. I lived in Victoria, Vancouver, the Loire Valley, Bonn, Stockholm and Berlin, but home beckoned in 2018 and I haven't looked back. I have a BA (European Studies), an LL.M. (International Human Rights Law), and am in a Restorative Justice Certificate program.


I've also got over twelve years of public relations, marketing and communications experience under my belt.​ I've ghostwritten speeches for the Foreign Minster of Germany and written white papers for an Artificial Intelligence technology firm. I've field organized for a Democratic congressional hopeful and done video reporting for the local paper. I've managed an online community of over 3 million scientists and designed social media campaigns for small grassroots organizations. You can see a portfolio of my comms work here. I'm also the co-founder of a co-working space in the heart of downtown Courtenay, co-valley.
