Alex first broke into the tech industry after accepting a job at Electronic Arts, within their Mobile division. At the time, mobile devices were far from complex accessories we all carry today. “I still think back in amazement how we witnessed firsthand the revolution in mobile computing,” he recalls. “In just a few years we went from flip phones that ran J2ME and BREW all the way to iOS and Android. It really was revolutionary. Suddenly gaming on a smartphone was more than just an afterthought, it became one of the centerpieces of a good smartphone.” In addition to kicking off his love of tech it proved to be the first steps towards a specialization in mobility that would shape his career for many years to come. Notable games Alex has worked on include Madden, FIFA, Tetris, The Sims, Scrabble, Need for Speed, The Simpsons, and many others.
Beyond AptGadget, he currently finds himself employed by a large IT firm helping to design, optimize, and run some of the best-known sites on the internet; once again, with an emphasis on mobility and responsive design. “It’s really fascinating. In some ways we’ve just witnessed the second mobile revolution as mobile sites went from being totally ignored, to being an afterthought, to now becoming the top priority for someone’s digital presence. More and more sites are going fully responsive, and now a days there really is no excuse for not optimizing for mobility anymore,” he mused.
In his spare time he loves listening to music, attending concerts, playing games (both of the video and board variety), food, movies, books, comics, scotch, researching tech and gadgets, making videos, and discussing science in it’s various iterations. Some of his favorite topics include futurism, cosmology, astrophysics, quantum mechanics, and psychology. Finally, like any good netizen, he can find joy in simpler pleasures like fail videos, animals being funny, or anyone displaying some insane talent you’ve never even thought of trying to become good at.
Starting off studying Physics and Music, he ended up leaving university to following his true passion: writing and the tech industry, more specifically games. He got his first knock at the professional writing life by getting some published articles on an MMO gaming site and never looked back. He has reviewed or written about a wide range of topics within the tech industry, from hardware, such as monitors and PC accessories, to software, such as video games.
Content writing is not his only joy, with creative writing playing a big part in his professional life. Over the course of his career, Albert has had the great pleasure and honor to have a published story as well as working as a creative writer in a few video games. Not only that, but he’s also worked as a designer for game mechanics.
Finally, Albert has also had a large amount of experience as a copy editor. Similarly, he’s worked both as a content curator as well as content director on video-game and tech related websites. As somebody responsible for content that attracts users, he’s always working towards staying abreast of technology.
