10 Questions with the Jigsaw Newbies: Alex Mora
Only 23 years old and having already met the Milverine, Alex might have opted for early retirement if Jigsaw hadn’t come along. After three happy months as a carefree intern he launched his career as a full-time pixel pusher. A recovering endorphin-junkie, Alex’s spare time is split between the gym, exploring Milwaukee’s sushi scene, and grumbling about the post-Tobey Maguire Spiderman era.

Tony the Tiger. He only ever says two words, like me.

I grew up watching The Lion King, so “Hakuna Matata.”

Ever since college I’ve gone with the wind—and then wind blew me here.
