Coming from the obscure world of web agencies, he's mainly working on the new app features and put his efforts in making the app as beautiful as possible. When he's not busy angrying at CSS that never works, he plays the bass guitar and fights people and monsters on online games.

Alexis also has an unshared love for some underground punk rock and tries to play the guitar on lunch breaks, but we like it for that too.
