Alex has extensive speaking experience, having given lectures at medical conferences throughout his career including a talk to an audience of over 3,000 at a Pri-Med Conference put on jointly by the University of Chicago and Northwestern University. He’s appeared on the television program On Call With Dr. Michael Breen and on Milt Rosenberg's nationally syndicated radio show, Extension 720. Alex has been quoted in Crain’s Chicago Business, Playboy, The Chicago Tribune, Men’s Health, and TIME, and has had articles appear in Psychology Today and Medicine on the Midway. He’s also written a television pilot called Sessions that was optioned by DreamWorks Television, as well as several movie screenplays, including an adaptation of Milton's Paradise Lost. Alex's overarching goal is to encourage people to explore happiness from a scientific point of view and help them think about life and themselves in ways they never have before. In doing so, he hopes to help people from all walks of life become happier.
