Alex Schwarm

New York

I am a New York City transplant from the rural Midwest. I grew up in southern Illinois raising cattle and playing baseball. I then ventured north to Chicago where I studied film, television and creative writing at Northwestern University, and I now work in the television industry in New York City.

I love to consume and create entertaining content that features authentic characters in dramatic, true-to-life situations. The stories I gravitate toward aim to engage emotionally and intellectually, hitting close to home while leaving you with something to ponder.

I love baking, bbq, and brews. I enjoy finding new favorite restaurants, but would rather whip up an old claasic recipe from my family cookbook. I live in Weehawken, NJ with my wife, Sam, and red miniature poodle, Remy.
