Personal motto:

"Next time, we’ll be sober." - Epic Meal Time

Alex is the newest member of our team. His passion started a few years ago, when his parents got their first car, a Dacia 1310 from 1998.

Shortly after, he saw that it wasn’t as reliable as they thought and the car got to the point to have its own mechanic, which it had to pay a visit once every two weeks.

Curiosity caught him, and he started to spend much time near it. A few years later, when they replaced the car, he started to disassemble and assemble it like it was a Lego toy.

During high school, he already was able to play the “Renault F1 Song” using the injectors. During that time he also got his license and, to his parents horror, used up gas like it was water.
