The "Alexander" behind the "Angels"!

 
 

Alexander Gomez-Nieto, now living in Simsbury, CT, was born in Scottsdale, AZ, in 2001 to two Long Islanders (NY).  At age 17, Alexander, an 11th grader at Simsbury High School, is a very active young man.  While in 10th grade he was a member of the choir and earned his first high school sports letter.  He has learned to swim, has taken horseback riding, is a member of a baseball team, loves to go to the movies, and when he was in 4th grade was elected class rep by his classmates at Squadron Line School.  At that school, he took part in the 6th grade play The Magical Land of Oz in the spring of 2014.  He enjoys playing his electric guitar and will be part of a theater class this fall.  Alexander does strength and conditioning after school and is in his high school's men's choir.
