He has been the program manager for HealthCAST, a simulated patient program developed in collaboration between NAWSON and the UHM Department of Theatre & Dance, since its creation in 2013. Alex’s dissertation explored the performative and interpretive aspects at play within simulation in healthcare education, such as immersivity, liveness, perceptual multistability, improvisation, and performativity. Alex is also active in the local theatre community as an actor and director. He has received several directing awards from the Hawaii State Theatre Council.
