Alex found a parallel in a time of transition between himself and the Balkans, a region of the world that has undergone rapid changes and an ongoing rebranding, over the past couple decades. Today, he is one of the world’s foremost authorities on the Balkans. He’s the travel editor at Paste Magazine and a freelance journalist, a career he found that he found purpose and creative expression from pursuing.
