Alex Fierro was born in 1986 in New Jersey. He studied mathematics and computer science intensely before graduating from Monroe Woodbury High School in 2004. He later went on to SUNY Purchase College. While at Purchase, as part of his Senior Project/Thesis, he began the social-networking site Find The Cameras in response to a university program to install hundreds of cameras throughout campus. His site allowed fellow students to use the Google Maps API to create a public database of the camera's geolocations so the entire campus would know exactly where they were all installed. Even though the site's huge success royally ticked off the school's administrators, he got an A on the thesis and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics and Computer Science.
