Alex, a native Berliner, might be caught out dancing at 80s night with his loving wife Rebecca, or at home playing the drums with his ‘free radical’ son Jude. Otherwise he might be chasing his chickens, working on his home, or brewing beer and dreaming of the day Green Hammer ‘brewed’ beer in addition to ‘built’ for life.
