Alexander was born and raised in Miami, Florida. His father was an engineer and fisherman and his mother was a nurse. He and his younger brother, Matthew, did not do without as children but their household was humble, having been born into a middle-class home. The proud parents always put their sons first and encouraged them in whatever they did.
Alexander was always interested and fascinated by Starfleet even at a young age and he always wanted to be a pilot. The move into the Academy with an interest in Helm (and science) was only natural when he turned 18. His first application was rejected but, after a year, his second was accepted.
He is a down to earth southern boy with average intelligence.
