Alexander is currently a student at Seattle Pacific University, studying music and writing. He has a great passion for both of these things, and is able to continue pursuing them due to the lifesaving heart transplant he received in September of 2017. An unexpected emergency following a family vacation led to him being hospitalized in August of 2017, and he was put on an artificial heart. Due to the generosity of a donor, he was able to receive a transplant remarkably quickly that saved his life. His recovery is coming along extremely well, and he has plans to return to SPU’s campus in the fall of 2018.
