Axel is the developer behind the present work in Lighthouse, and is always excited to find better ways to develop for good.

Outside of Whole Whale, Axel invests his time with local nonprofits advocating for safer streets in New York City for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as teaching kids and adults how to ride a bicycle and do so safely. He has also worked as an instructor in public and charter schools to encourage students to learn programming, robotics, and graphic design. He believes that no matter your gender or background, a rich education is an important stepping stone to magnifying your voice and moving us towards equality.

While he’s not working, you can find Axel on a trail or road on his bicycle, making a random song that might one day be ready to be heard, or catching up with things he always wanted to do as a kid.
