Having grown up in Brussels, he is of Anglo/Danish heritage and this cultural diverse background made him choose the UK where he graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Modelmaking, obtaining technical experience from various companies such at Foster & Partner’s in London to Faurecia in Paris.
A petrolhead at heart, passionate about movement and motion, his thirst for design took him to Paris where he completed a Masters Degree in Transportation Design, working for Faurecia, Expression Motorsport and ADM Concept.
Since then, Alec has 10 years of design management experience as the Head of Transport Design & Mobility Department at Creapole ESDI School in Paris, working with various OEM's fostering industrial partnerships and facilitating recruitment for graduates.
" Motorised. Movement. Two words that have always been a particular passion of mine since my earliest recollection. Since childhood, often the reluctant passenger, everything about wheels in motion has fascinated me; it has to be smelt, touched, looked at, tested, and felt.
A petrolhead's diet is forever evolving, incomplete and always searching for newer, better sources of energy"
