When I met Alex Beyer in 2010 at a piano competition in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, we struck up a conversation about his passion for soccer and his dream of becoming a NASA astronaut. Since then, he has gone on to win third prize at the Dublin International Piano Competition and the Queen Elisabeth Competition, while graduating from the Harvard/New England Conservatory dual degree program. And it was at the peak of his piano competition career that he pivoted, away from the life of a concert pianist.

Today he is a Student Naval Aviator in the United States Navy.
