At ESPN, Alex produced highlights incorporating video game elements mixed with live event footage for broadcast nationally, internationally, and streamed to the internet. He created video packages splicing footage of The Rolling Stones in Martin Scorsese’s “Shine a Light” documentary with moments from the UEFA Euro League Championship, which aired across ESPN domestic and international platforms. His current projects pursue the ways in which gaming and esports benefit mental health and build awareness of the undesirable consequences of unhealthy gaming habits.
