Never leaves home without

His Bicycle, reusable coffee mug and water bottle.

The idea to embark on The Water Brothers project first arose in 2009, when Alex started working alongside his brother at SK Films, conducting research for IMAX ® films in development. After receiving a degree in International Development and Environmental Studies from Dalhousie, the decision to join the family business and begin the Water Brothers series was an easy one. The series has allowed him to combine his interest in science, the environment and film to explain how humans can harmonize our relationship with water and the natural world. When he isn’t working on the Water Brothers, he likes to spend his time reading, playing sports, scuba diving and hanging out with friends at the family’s Georgian Bay cottage.
