LFW Member Spotlight – Alex Modarressi

Have you ever wondered who the people behind Living Fort Wayne are? Or maybe you’re curious about the different things our team does every day that make Living Fort Wayne the go-to destination for all the great things happening in our city. In this new spotlight series, we’ll be featuring a few of our amazing volunteers who will share a bit about their contributions to Living Fort Wayne and what they do outside of their volunteer work with us.

Today we are spotlighting Living Fort Wayne’s Vice Chair of Community Engagement, Alex Modarressi!

What is your role with Living Fort Wayne and why did you decide to volunteer for our blog?
My role at Living Fort Wayne is Vice Chair of Community Engagement. I believe Fort Wayne has many great local businesses and there are some wonderful people who live here. I wanted to attribute to an organization with values that were for the betterment of communities in and around Fort Wayne.

Tell us one thing about your life outside of Living Fort Wayne
I am looking forward to taking an Entrepreneurial leap soon. I find myself inspired by the people here who are willing to help others succeed and the programs that foster entrepreneurship within this region of Indiana and beyond.

If you could live any other place in the world, besides Fort Wayne, where would you live and why?

I would consider living in New Mexico or Southern California even though I have never visited either. People say they love the weather, that people are more social and not as socially inhibited..

If you had a friend coming in from out of town, what is the one can’t miss thing you would show them or do with them in Fort Wayne?

There are so many fun things going on in Fort Wayne that t makes this is difficult question. If I had to choose one thing I would suggest we attempt to ride all 25 miles of the Rivergreenway or bike around town!

If you were going to karaoke tonight, what song would you sing?
Whatever someone would wanna sing with me.


Keep your eyes peeled for the next spotlight with another one of Living Fort Wayne’s volunteers. If you’d like to learn more about opportunities to help out with our blog, send us an email at info@livingfortwayne.com or reach out to us on Twitter and Facebook.
We’re always interested in meeting with other folks who are passionate about sharing all that’s great about living, working and playing right here in Fort Wayne!
