Meet the Studio Cotton team

Alex Tennant

Technical Director
He/him
Started Spring 2017

Our technical director Alex officially joined Studio Cotton in January 2017, but he’s actually been here since day 1; previously occupying (and continuing to occupy) the role of founder Aime’s husband (and primary cheerleader).

By day, Alex is a software architect with over 15 years of experience in the tech industry. Whilst Studio Cotton might technically be Alex’s side-hustle, he’s been instrumental in shaping how we approach our web creation projects and refining our technical systems to be, well, pretty darn baller.

Alex can code in many languages (even if Studio Cotton only needs him to use like 4 of those), and has a degree in something from the Open University. As well as his day job and Studio Cotton role, you’ll often find him coding away on personal game development projects.
