Alex Conu

What is your favourite on-the-go snack?

Kvikk Lunsj, the Norwegian version of Kit Kat

Where is your Hometown?

I was born in Alexandria, Romania, but hometown doesn’t have a lot of meaning for me. I feel anywhere at home and I really love finding new hometowns.

What is your go-to vice to clear your head?

A night under a clear sky in the mountains. You can’t beat that.

What’s something on the bucket list that you haven't checked off the list yet?

The list is long and I know I will not manage to check everything off. The number one element on the list is seeing our planet from Space.

What does Human Powered Adventures mean to you?

For me “Human Powered Adventures” translates to “If you have a dream, follow it.” I think it’s only in your power to do what you want to do. So, start doing it! Now!

What is your Primary Occupation?

Photographer / Astrophysicist

Who Inspires You & 1 Reason Why?

I’m inspired by curious people. I think curiosity is the motor behind any endeavour.

One thing you can’t leave home without?

A photo camera, of course.

Would you rather be too hot or too cold?

Too cold, definitely. After spending so many nights watching the skies, I think I somehow adapted to the cold.

Why Westcomb?

Well, that’s easy. Westcomb garments are exceptionally functional and stripped of any useless features.

What is your go-to piece of Westcomb gear?

The Crest Hoody. It weighs almost nothing and packs to the size of an small orange.

Thanks Alex!
