Alex C – Downtown

Greetings, all! My name is Alex Combes (you can pronounce Combes as Combs as well). I am a full time Guitarist for melodic/progressive rock band & have been studying and playing music for over 11 years!

During my course of High School, I was a part of a Yoga Class taught by Joseph Mata, who is currently changing how math can be taught through music & yoga. This class allowed me to preform music alongside Mata & give a unique approach to how I view the world. With my passion for yoga & spirituality i was able to understand how much of an effect I can have on people and animals alike. The dogs in my life were beautiful creatures with immense compassion & loyalty for they’re owners. As someone who practiced spirituality for 8 years, thereโ€™s more of a priority to protect these animals. These animals taught me discipline, loyalty, & gratitude for life.

Born & raised in Bronx, NY, From foods, music, diversity, culture, & animals
this is an amazing place to grow up. With Pomeranians, Shih Tzu, Yorkies, Rottweilders, Pitbulls and other animals as diverse as the people, how can you not love NYC.

It was always a dream of mine to work with animals. I have heavy planning for enrolling myself I programs with Animal Control and the ASPCA. I have a personal discomfort when I witness negligence or mistreatment to these animals. Every single one of these animals are so unique & mean much more than just dogs or cats to us.

Although my career orientation is based on music, my love for animals definitely continues to teach me to live in the moment and practice gratitude for the small things in life.

Furthermore, I am thankful to be a part of the RuffCity team, & can’t wait to meet you & that fluffy companion of yours!!
