Alec Psinakis has been with vXchnge since March of 2018 and works out of our headquarters office in Tampa, Florida. As a software engineering intern, Alec has taken on a role to help automate many different areas of the company, helping to create a more efficient business flow and save the company money. He most recently attended the University of Central Florida in Orlando where he majored in Computer Science, then moved to Tampa to get some practical programming experience and is finishing his degree online. Alec was born in northern NJ and grew up in CA outside San Francisco before moving to Tampa for High School. Alec doesn’t have much spare time balancing both work and school, but when he does, he likes to build video games and hang out with friends.
Why do you enjoy working at vXchnge?

If you had to invest $1M in a company, where would you place your bets?
If I can’t start my own company and then immediately invest it in myself, I might invest in the gaming company Obsidian Entertainment . With the terrible release of Bethesda’s Fallout 76 leaving a giant whole in the market, Obsidian announced their own game ‘The Outer Worlds’ to compete in the same genre that looks like it will blow away all the competition. They have an excellent track record with releasing very high quality content, so I will give my $1M to Obsidian.
If you had to choose a different city and state to live in, where would you go?
Parts of me really miss the West Coast, especially the different seasons we don’t get here in Florida. Maybe somewhere in Colorado?
