Alex Paullin



Alex Paullin is a lifelong musician with a degree in Geographic Science and a wide breadth of additional environmental education. He is a talented composer and producer of both audio and video alike, able to direct a project from start to finish and fill any role that’s necessary in the field or in the studio. His travel and field experience with National Geographic serve him well as he chases his dream of sustainable development through music.

It is his ultimate personal goal that his life and his career intertwine to make positive change for the planet a lifestyle. He will continue to draw upon his scientific education, global expedition experience, hard work ethic, and creative abilities to inspire global change through whatever position he holds. He relishes the challenge of difficult tasks, and he is more than willing to apply himself equally to smaller ones. Whether working independently or with an organization, the mission comes first. He recognizes that effective communication and collaboration are the key to achieving any goal, and he appreciates the wisdom to be gained through conversation with others.
