A little about Alex…

If you could master a new skill in an instant, what would it be?
Hitting my driver straight – It would be nice to play just one round of golf from the fairway and not the trees!

If we went to happy hour, what would you order?
I like to try different beers so if there’s something on the menu I’ve not had before, chances are I’ll be ordering that. If it’s a cocktails only happy hour, then I do quite like an Old Fashioned.

Tell us about your 15 mins of fame?
I once spent a day filming for the TV show Casualty, only to find that when I sat down to watch it, my scene had been cut.
