Based in Saint Joseph

As a UX designer at Whirlpool Corporation, I am currently focusing on digital LCD experiences for appliance user interfaces. Previously I lead the UX design and strategy for KitchenAid small appliances. I have the opportunity to work with all types of designers and other cross-functional teams while creating experiences for products that spend ten or more years in people's homes.

What students say

"He gets a 4 1/2 stars for sure! He provided good feedback and encouraged me to keep moving forward. I really enjoyed our conversations and felt it was the most useful part of the course."

- John Hoysa, UX: Interaction Design

"Alex was great! He was really encouraging, giving helpful feedback and advice to gently guide me through the course and allow me to get the most out of the syllabus and tasks. He was happy to respond to emails between our scheduled mentor sessions and shared his own professional experiences to give me real world insight into being a UX designer. I have come away feeling really inspired and excited about my career development!"
