Alex was one of Stephen's college roommates, who he dormed with every year. They met on Starmen.net and decided to become roommates when they found out they were both going to attend SCAD. His first appearance was on Day 40, and he continues to appear on StephenVlog and StephenPlays.
Alex is rather sarcastic, and sometimes people think that he has ill will toward Stephen and anything related to the vlog. However, they are best friends and his comments are mostly friendly ribbing.
After college, he moved to California to work in the games industry. At PAX Prime 2013 he met Mal's college roommate, Hayley. They currently live together in Los Angeles, and were engaged on July 23rd, 2016.
