Alexander Lyle was born November 26th, 1971 in Fort Worth, TX. His mother, Nona, an art teacher, and father, Bruce, an aerospace engineer, imparted their broad spectrum of influence from an early age on young Alex. A child of the 70s, his first major interests were Star Wars and Legos. Soon after came his first bicycle, which he lived on after school and on weekends. This eventually turned into a skateboard during his teenage years, and then into a hand-me-down Monte Carlo.
In the 80s, Alex attended Southwest High School in Fort Worth, where he was good at baseball, terrible at basketball, and first-chair (and last-chair) French horn in band. It was also at this time he began a 10-year career in picture framing.
Throughout the 90s, Alex attended the University of Texas at Arlington, where he majored in film and minored in theater in literature. This eventually garnered him a BFA in Film & Video Production, which led to his career in furniture moving here at Delivery Limited, beginning in 1999.
In 2006, along with Alex Van Strien and Jake Reeves, Alex started the Fine Art Services department here at Delivery Limited, specializing in the handling, installation, and storage of fine works of art and chandeliers. The department has blossomed over the years, accomplishing countless unique and challenging art installations with an outstanding team of talented individuals.
Some of Alex’s accomplishments include taking first place in three design contests, first place in a model building contest, and first place in a three-legged race. His 1995 short film Lunch was selected to screen at numerous festivals and venues, including the Directors Guild in Hollywood. Alex has also done extensive work in the field of sound and sound effects, and won an award for Best Sound Editing for the short film Sunday Drive.
Alex currently resides in Oak Cliff with his fiancée Jess and their seven cats, which they herd on a daily basis. He is a Dallas Stars season ticket holder, a band-wagon Mavs and Rangers fan, and reluctantly roots for the Cowboys. His favorite band is U2, and he will readily give convincing argument as to why they are the best band in the world. But above all, he is still a film fanatic at heart, and is eagerly awaiting the next Star Wars sequel.
In his own words: “I’m proud of the Fine Art Services department and its reputation we’ve created over the years. The challenges and accomplishments it brings every day, and the opportunity I get to meet them head-on with this wonderful team we’ve assembled is a constant reward. Thank you God!”
