Meet Alex

I’m Alex—a Chicago-dwelling, pun-loving, twenty-something. In any given week, you’ll find me hustling at a digital agency by day, and baking pie in the kitchen by night.


Launched in 2014, Pies Before Guys is a dessert lover’s paradise that advocates pie for breakfast without judgement.

Pies Before Guys originated as a pie of the month club out of a small Brookyln apartment. The monthly get-togethers showed me it’s remarkably easy to unify friends with a delicious pie and a whole bottle glass of wine. And after too much champagne one night, we bought the URL piesbeforeguys dot com. Luckily the champagne didn’t impair our spelling.

Fast-forward a few years, and the pie enthusiast (that’d be me 🙋) now resides in the Windy City a few blocks from her adorable pie-loving niece (aka my favorite pie model).
