Alex Policastro

I'm Alex Policastro.

Pixel Pusher & Code Junkie

I am a UI/UX Designer & Frontend Web Developer living in San Diego, CA. Design & development are my passions and I use them in tandem to push myself to create great-looking and functional products. I’m self-motivated and take pride in learning new methods, always pushing myself to discover what I don't yet know.


I have been a Sr. Interactive Designer for Paradeigm for over 5 years, working directly with clients on their web projects. In addition, I have been the lead UI/UX Designer / Frontend Developer for PageBuilder. While managing the development team, we created the website building platform PageBuilder for clients to easier launch and edit their websites.


I create things to make people's lives better! At my core, I am a helper. My goal is to do everything with a positive attitude and to help my clients achieve their vision.


I was born in New York, grew up in Wisconsin, and spent the last 10 years in California. I live in North Park with my wife Dominique and cat Luna. When not working on a computer, I use my hands to do woodworking using my CNC machine. I love tropical tiki drinks, pizza, board games, and spending time with friends.
