He recently graduated with a B.S. in biology from the University of Pittsburgh and currently works as a web developer.
Due to his interest in the film industry and a need for money, Alexander took on several production jobs throughout college, including being an additional production assistant on The Dark Knight Rises and a casting intern at Mosser Casting. He also did background work in several films. In September 2012 Alexander was discovered by the people of reddit.com, a popular social internet community, after posting a thread that reached #1 on the front page of the website regarding his role of "Suspicious Onlooker" in Jack Reacher (2012).
Since then Alexander has been training while simultaneously taking on acting roles in non-union productions.
In 2011 Alexander created "NoFap", a website which has helped thousands of people quit porn and live more fulfilling lives with improved interpersonal relationships.
