Lesley Murphy, a Bachelor alum, is now married. Lesley married her fiancé Alex Kavanagh on October 14 at the Ritz-Carlton in Maui’s Kapalua, after being engaged to him for two years. The couple married on Friday, with their 20-month-old daughter, Nora, serving as the flower girl. According to Lesley,
“We are so dedicated to one other that we already feel married. But having our special day and finally being allowed to name each other husband and wife is priceless.”
Alex Kavanagh is a licensed drone operator.
Bachelor alumnus According to his LinkedIn page, Lesley Murphy’s spouse, Alex Kavanagh, is the creative director and creator of DRONEGEAR, “the first independent drone sharing platform on Instagram 2013.” Alex Kavanagh, who was born in Australia, is a CASA and FAA-certified drone pilot. His work has appeared in halftime ads for the Baseball World Series and the Football Super Bowl, as well as Emmy-nominated work on National Geographic.
Alex had worked as a carpenter before joining Drones. When asked about his job, he told Pelican.com:
“I was a carpenter and contractor who happened to take up a camera.” Which led to the desire to fly that camera remotely.”
He began his career as a freelance creative director at Western Digital, XOAR Propeller, and The Tiffen Company, among other firms, after discovering his passion, before establishing his own company in 2013. Kavanagh, 35, is also a “Creative Director at SDSU’s Centre for Unmanned Technologies and CRPAA (Certified Remote Pilots Association of America) Board member.” Alex is passionate about drones and anything related to them, but if he could do anything else, he would want to be an “astronaut” and explore space.
Stayin’ Alive by the Bee Gees drives him in the morning, and one slogan he uses when things become rough is:
“Continue to create. Don’t give up.”
