Axel was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After moving to the US and attending college, he became interested in advocating against the drug war through Students for Sensible Drug Policy. With a passion for Harm Reduction, he began distributing Naloxone directly to people who use drugs in Florida in 2013 and while in active addiction, operated an underground syringe access program. Before coming to Rebel Recovery, Axel worked on the IDEA bill and other policies on the State and Federal level. He enjoys playing guitar and seeing live music.
