Alex Peurye

New York, NY

Alex was born and raised in Wilmette, IL, a suburb just north of Chicago. Growing up some of his favorite things were Lou Malnati’s Pizza, double beach days at camp, Native American art and artifacts, and gardening. His father is a telecommunications analyst, and formerly a professional photographer, and his mother is a corporate philanthropist.

After graduating from New Trier High School in 2004, he attended and graduated from Indiana University with dual degrees in Theatre and Business in 2009. He is a CPA. He was a member of the 2nd graduating class from the Tom Todoroff Conservatory in New York City for his professional acting training.

He is proud to say he kayaked from Valdez to Whittier, lived on a glacier for a month, and climbed Spud Pass during his summer living in Alaska.

He loves to travel and has also visited Costa Rica, Cartagena Colombia, Paris, London, Vienna, Prague, Tuscany, Israel, and China. His future travel wish list includes Scandinavia and India.

In New York City, you’re likely to run into him bouldering the schist in Central Park, cycling along the Hudson, or dancing at the 718 Sessions.
