"I have had the opportunity to work with Alex on numerous projects (including features) over the last twenty years. I have enormous respect for his work. His story sense is superb and his story instincts have been a big help to me. I had spent close to a year with Alex crafting the boards to a 3D movie we produced here for Walt Disney World. He brought so much to this project and in many ways deserves much credit for what has turned out to be one of the most popular attractions at Disney World. I strongly recommend him and hope you get as much from his talents and strengths as I did.
George Scribner - Animation Director - Walt Disney Imagineering

"... I’ve worked in the animation field for almost thirty years, in various positions at Disney, Warner Bros., Sony, Bluth and other studios, I find Alex an outstanding writer and story artist. He is consistently creative, has a deep understanding of animated and live-action cinema, and is a joy to collaborate with. We began writing together in 2003, and we sold and wrote the script for the first show we developed as a team. I look forward to developing other projects with him in the future.I’m sure you will be entirely satisfied by Alex’s ability, insight and passion on your project."
Linda Miller - Story Artist/Writer - The Walt Disney Studios

""It was a pleasure working with Alex during the storyboard phase Mickey’s Philharmagic, a 3D attraction at Walt Disney World, Florida. Alex had both the conceptual and drawing skills needed to help bring some of Disney’s most memorable characters to life."
