Actor and Writer in New York
Alexander is a New York City actor who made his television debut earlier this year on Investigation Discovery's (ID TV), Young, Hot & Crooked. He plays the lead character in the feature film, Where Hearts Lie, written and directed by Tony Lindsay and co-written by Sarah Karim. He rejoins with Director Tanner Jarman on the short film of High-Hoops. He also is attached to the upcoming feature How To Tell You're A Douchebag, reuniting with Director Tahir Jetter and is proudly accompanying his friend and this project to Sundance Film Festival 16’. Alexander is the type of talent who continually inspires writer-directors, like the two aforementioned, to create characters with him in mind. Alexander was nominated for a BEST ACTOR Award in the Texas Black Film Festival 10' for his debut work in the short film Grace, written and directed by Steven Mondesir.
He's a leading man and has played a myriad of types but feels most satisfied when given the freedom to collaborate and present the flawed characters of a narrative while celebrating their unusual choices. The idea of inhabiting an underdog or unlikeable character whose morals are questionable and totally self-serving is one of the things that excite him most about acting. He has a theatrical background that includes a B.A. from The City College of New York and has amassed credits with forward-thinking theater companies like The Classical Theatre of Harlem and the Billy Holiday Theater. He is also a Co-Founder of The Seven Collective, a group of like-minded artists of Caribbean & Hispanic descent, who are dedicated to supporting and producing innovative Arts and theatre. Alexander and The Seven Collective are also performing artists who bring arts education to underserved and foster children throughout the city in partnership with Free Arts NYC.
