After working on banking systems for IBM in the late ‘80s, Alex joined BBC Television as a broadcast systems project engineer and took on complex software projects, at a time when PCs were banned anywhere in the live broadcast chain!
An experienced software architect, system integrator and project manager, in 1994 Alex headed up the world-leading captioning and subtitling software division of SysMedia, where his many clients worldwide included BBC Television, Sky Television, NetworkSeven (Australia) and Technicolor. He was also instrumental in the roll-out of the very first voice-to-text subtitling systems for television in 1998.
Alex co-founded Captioning Studio with a passionate vision for creating new ways to deliver high-quality accessibility to more people and in more places through collaboration, technology and automation.
Passionate about good food, Alex’s favourite way to spend an afternoon is in the kitchen creating his own recipes – or in the music studio with his guitars!
