ROC Spotlight Series - Alex Berentzen


What are you reading?
I am currently re-reading “New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle, a book that I picked up after reading many leadership and personal growth books – and the only one worth reading over and over. You learn a lot about yourself by reading this book.

What are you listening to?
I usually find myself listening to nonverbal music, like Buddha Lounge or Anjuna Beats on Pandora. These are two styles that either relax me after a long day or get me amped up before a workout.

What is the last album or song that you downloaded?
Rufus Du Sol – Unforgiven. If you don’t know it, look it up on I-tunes and play it. Very catchy tune…

What are you currently watching on TV?
Couple of shows I am hooked on; “The 100” as well as “Ghost Adventures”

What is the last movie you saw?
Sicario – with Benicio del Toro. Not only a great story on the drug war between Mexico and US, but incredible directing and acting and amazing shots. Not good for kids, so watch late at night...

Who are you following on Twitter?
I am not on Twitter – but on LinkedIn I follow a few hospitality firms. It is a great way to stay up to speed on innovation and trends.

How do you spend your Sundays?
I usually get up, go to CrossFit, then have an incredible breakfast with my family. Then Church at 10am, while the rest of the day is usually filled with family activities - and lots of fresh food! We love cooking, so we spend most of the day in the kitchen.
