Alex is from a small town outside of Winnipeg, Canada. He was brought up to work hard and take pride in everything you do.
After spending his teens working for a successful entrepreneur, he was hooked on the freedom and satisfaction that comes with building a business from the ground up.
University wasn't the right fit, so at 18 he took a job on the oil rigs and was quickly given raises and responsibility. Shortly after he applied for an apprenticeship position in the Signals & Communications at CN Rail.
At CN Alex learned many critical skills and after several years challenged the Electronics and Communications Technician exam within the company to dive into more technical work.
Leveraging the planning, coordination and management skills learned at CN (and wage) with the practical skills from farming and home repairs learned from his Father, Alex purchased his first home at 20 which quickly turned into several properties for Development and Management.
It became clear that working in a larger corporation wasn't the best fit. Alex sold all his properties along with almost all other possessions, quit his job, and moved to Europe to be mentored in online business from close friends there.
Now after years of work, he is the proud Founder of Crik Nutrition. A sport nutrition company that started with just one product, vanilla protein powder made from crickets.
Crik is the perfect blend of passions and never ending challenges that gives Alex the drive to continually push the business to new levels.
Lots more to come!
