He was Erica's colleague during high school. He used to be geeky and shy, specifically around girls.
He was Erica's lab partner and she never noticed him, while he was secretly in love with her.
Passionate and romantic, he used to write poems. One of them was dedicated to Erica.
In 1994, during a school trip to the beach, Alex read his poem to Erica, after she finally started talking to him.
He ended up defending her from her boyfriend, Zach, and lost his virginity with Erica. It was her first time as well.
In 2009, Erica and Alex met each other again. He now works for a railroad, in logistics, and loves trains.
