Chef Alex spent his early years learning about food through the influence of his family who are of African American and West Indian descent. He began his culinary journey in July 2000 with the United States Navy as a Culinary Specialist. While stationed in Yokosuka Japan onboard the USS Kittyhawk, Chef Alex traveled all over Southeast Asia, learning about different cultures and cuisines.  It was through his experience in the armed forces that Alex rediscovered his love for food.

Upon his return to civilian life in July 2004, Chef Alex worked in several hotels and restaurants climbing the ranks of the culinary field. In 2009, he earned his Associate’s Degree in Culinary Arts from the Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College in Philadelphia.

Chef Alex takes pride in providing culinary experiences that are unique and immersive. He has been featured on many culinary platforms, including the prestigious James Beard House and Food Network’s, “Chopped.”  Chef Alex also does private catering in which he curates private dinners, cannabis experiences, pop-up restaurants, and formal events. 

Chef Alex is currently the Executive Chef at Strickland Steakhouse, which was recently featured in New Jersey Monthly’s Best New Restaurants in New Jersey 2024.
