Hey 👋 My name is Alex Medick. I’m the Chief Marketing Officer at Inside and sometimes I invest in startups. I also like to build websites and am enamored with all things tech. I believe in a better way to work, creating a calm, creative, and asynchronous workplace, conscious capitalism, distributed work, data privacy and ethics, and creating a better tomorrow for us all.
I also believe in the hacker mentality to build and grow companies. </hacker>
I live in Las Vegas, Nevada with my wife, Desiree, and our son, Zephyr. To learn a little bit more about me, check out a few of the cliff notes below.
In November 2020, I took on the role of becoming the first ever Chief Marketing Officer at the startup media company, Inside.
Inside, founded by legendary Angel Investor Jason Calacanis, is a modern-day media organization focused on sharing the latest news, insights, trends, and interviews covering the worlds of business, tech, and venture capital.

Before taking my role at Inside, I was a full-stack marketing consultant. That’s a fancy way of saying I helped business set up their marketing funnels, strategy, inbound and outbound campaigns, as well as managed digital advertising. I also built WordPress websites for clients.
While I don’t do consulting full-time anymore, I do take on the occasional client if there is a good fit.
If you want to talk consulting, send me an email and let’s see if there’s an alignment.
I live and work in Las Vegas, Nevada, but honestly, I could live and work anywhere I want to.
I’ve been a massive believer in the remote / distributed work lifestyle for a while now. It’s amazing that we live in a day and age where someone can work anywhere in the world with a team and still create something amazing without location being a barrier.
I am a remote worker and hope to be for a long time. In fact, everyone at Inside is remote, which is pretty incredible.
If you’re interested in getting into remote work, I highly recommend reading Remote: Office Not Required and listening to the Distributed Podcast with Matt Mullenweg.
On May 15, 2015, I married the most incredible woman. Desiree and I have been together for nearly a decade now and she has helped me get through all of the craziness of my work life and ambition – starting my own company, working at a startup, going full-time consulting, etc. If it wasn’t for her, I without a doubt would not be where I am today.
On March 7, 2017, we welcomed our super rad son, Zephyr into the world. And our little girl will be coming to this world in May 2021.
I wish I had some super quirky hobby I could tell you about, but I’m actually kind of a simple individual. I spend so much of my work life in the tech space, that I like to spend free time in a more analog setting.
For fun, I like to hike, skateboard, surf, read books, and listen to music.
I’m also a massive West Ham United fan. #COYI ⚒️⚒️⚒️
These are the charities and organizations that I like to give to and support on a regular basis.
Environmental protection, education, and digital privacy are really important to me, and I think it would be awesome if you donated to these causes: Surfrider Foundation, Nori, Donors Choose, Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Signal App.
I’m by no means a major investor, but I do love helping startups that will change the future in anyway that I can. I’m a big supporter of founders and visionaries and I want to financially back them at the Pre-Seed/Seed stage to help bring their idea to life. You can check out my investment portfolio here.
