Alex’s career trajectory has been unorthodox to say the least. One day working for a global investment bank in Hong Kong pursuing the chimeric fortunes of algorithmic trading, the next a stagiaire with some of the world’s greatest street food vendors and food heroes. Alex’s public profile rocketed in 2012 after launching a food blog, the sad pig. Now Alex is living the dream, intrepidly traveling and sharing authentic food and stories of provenance.
