Alex Alsup

LOVELAND Technologies
Chief Product Officer
Detroit, MI
Alex set his sights on Detroit while living in Hanoi, Vietnam, working on the iPhone game Meteor Blitz. Before his 2011 arrival in Detroit, he also had stints in New Orleans, Brooklyn, and Philadelphia, where he developed story and gameplay design features for the retro 8-bit style iPhone game, Hipster City Cycle. He is most proud of his 4loko power-ups that ramped acceleration, but inverted your steering.  Since becoming LOVELAND’s first hire in 2012, he has worked on design and overseen the use of mapping and data collection tools. Alex describes his role as one of Process Engineering -- designing the interfaces and tools that take you from identification of a problem to development of a solution. He also handles business development for LOVELAND's suite of tools.  Alex is the proprietor of GooBing Detroit, an often-referenced visual resource on how the ongoing foreclosure crisis has affected Detroit’s housing stock. He holds a BFA in English from Skidmore College.
