A complete filmmaker with diverse talents, Alex brings his unique touch to all stages of production and post, crafting honest and deft stories that ring with emotional truth.
Originally from San Francisco, Alex began his career in New York City as an assistant editor for Spike Lee before moving west to attend graduate school at UCLA.
Alex has created and overseen broad campaigns for a diverse client list including Tesla and SolarCity, Filson, Patagonia, Ram Trucks and the US Army.
Alex produced and edited the feature documentary Low & Clear, which premiered at SXSW in March 2012 where it won the Emerging Visions Audience Award and was hailed by Paste Magazine as ‘the best documentary of the year.’
His current feature documentary, Young Men & Fire, has received support from Sundance, The San Francisco Film Society, ITVS and MountainFilm.
In 2010, Alex created Sparrow Songs a new media documentary project in which he made and released one short documentary a month, every month for one year. The project developed a worldwide following with Filmmaker Magazine calling the films “poetic essays about love, truth, community and the ways we are choosing to live our lives” and naming Alex to their list of The 25 New Faces of Independent Film.
