Over time, Alex has developed many interests. He is well versed in dealing with venomous snakes. He designs and builds rustic furniture, plays the guitar, is a writer and author, and tour guide.
After an eleven-year period of living in intense internal pain Alex had a shocking experience that led him to a spiritual awakening. Subsequently, he studied theology and after understanding what had occurred to him, he began to give some counseling on the subject.
After Alex wrote his first book on the topic, he decided to convert his farm into a reserve which serves the purpose of helping others achieve spiritual awareness and be in contact with nature.
