Hi, I'm Alex 

I’m a student, reporter, and researcher based in Detroit, Michigan. I’m currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in Urban Studies and Public History at Wayne State University and will graduate in spring 2025. 

What I Do

I report on education and local government.

In March 2024, I was featured in Documenting the Documenters, a short film about the Detroit Documenters program.

I love researching and writing about history.

Students navigate parking struggles as rates rise

For the first time in four years, Wayne State’s Board of Governors has voted to raise university parking rates, while students report affordability and maintenance concerns at garages across campus.
