Alex Carey is a self professed nerd with a love of films, video and board games. He was born in Cold Lake, Alberta but moved early in his life to Victoria BC then again to the Comox Valley where he graduated high school in 2011. He currently resides in New Westminster BC where he is pursuing post secondary education at Simon Fraser University.
At 18 months old Alex was diagnosed with a genetic disorder called Spinal Muscular Atrophy or SMA. This disorder requires Alex to use a power wheelchair for mobility but he has never let that stop him for doing what he wants to do.
