His first contract was with UNICEF, where he was tasked to make 700 bags.

Now, Alex can produce any form of leatherwork any person wishes him to produce: Laptop bags, belts, shoes, instrument cover bags, school bags, and many more.

When asked how he gets his materials to work with, he opined that he buys them from Kumasi, where he currently resides.
