Since Appearance:
I worked for a few years as a writer, then got an MBA and have ben an executive in several small businesses.

Jeopardy! helped change my life. I left my job as a lawyer just prior to my appearance and thanks to winning, I was able to quit the law and try my hand at a creative career. Now, I include my Jeopardy! record on my resume and it gets more interest than any other accomplishment. Everyone always wants to know what Alex was like.
