Hi! I’m Alex. I live in St. Louis Park, MN (the best place on earth), and I’m a counselor in a tuition-free public charter high school. In my free-time I like to explore the Twin Cities, learn things, make things (drawings, jewelry, crafts, food), read, watch movies, sing (show-tunes and old-time folk songs), and dance (Irish, Belly Dancing, etc.). Also, I have a cat, named Jane.

  1. Hi. I watched you singing ‘Oak and Ash and Thorn’ on your youtube channel and it was purely amazing! Thanks for that!
    Wish you a lovely day and a clear blue sky above you.


    1. It depends! It’s not hard for me, but some people might think it’s hard. You have to isolate different parts of your body (like hip hop dancing), and some people find that easier than others. For males, it would be a bit harder, and it’s not really traditionally meant for males. But the classes I’ve taken were progressive in difficulty, so I thought it was just really fun!


      1. Oh, yes, the professor wouldn’t try it! I think it’s definitely a female thing. But I’ve always wondered. I thought it looks like it would be difficult. It’s cool nonetheless. I was in a Moroccan restaurant once…and I saw some of that dancing.


  2. Just wanted to say hi again. I’ve known a couple who grew up in Minneapolis for many years and are still active playing music. Recently Al Beck, who plays both Russian and Cajun Accordion and I reunited with my brother to play traditional Cajun music at a big party held by our mutual friend, Joe Izen. Hope all is well with you and your family.

    take care,


  3. I’m still enjoying hearing your singing. Have close friends who grew up in Minneapolis that play a variety of music including British and American traditional music, Cajun music, and Russian music with his teacher, Vladimir.
