Alex Cohen

I don't specifically remember meeting Alex, but I recently got to spend some time hanging out with him and skating with him when he was visiting Arizona this past December. I sorta consider that to be when I met him because it was my first experience hanging out and having any real conversation with him. He is definitely an good person to be around. Seems to be pretty positive and happy most of the time. I was psyched on his wanting to be outside all day while he was here, taking advantage of our amazing weather and reminding me that I too should be outside enjoying the amazing climate that I live in an have already started to take for granted. As well as being a spreader of positivity, he's also makes cool arts. At any given night at Tempe park you might see one of his colorfully painted shirts warming the shoulders of one of his fans.
