After moving to the Chicagoland area when he was six, Alex spent much of his youth playing sports, reading comic books and making movies with friends. Upon enrolling at DePauw University, he immediately got involved with the University’s television station as a cast member, writer and producer for “The Pre-Recorded Late Night Show.” Following a late-night and sketch format, the show aimed to satirize college life, and went on to become one of the most popular student programs in the school’s history. It still runs to this day. Furthermore, he wrote, directed and starred in numerous short films with fellow classmates and friends. Alex’s senior thesis film entitled, “Bubble,” would go on to screen at multiple film festivals across the country.
After graduating from DePauw in 2016, Alex moved to Los Angeles and trained at the North Hollywood Young Actor’s Studio. Once finished, he returned home to Chicago after being accepted into The Harold Ramis Film School (HRFS) at The Second City in Chicago--as well as The Second City’s acting conservatory. In these programs, he received extensive training in Second City’s legendary method of improvisation, and either starred in, wrote, directed or produced nearly 20 projects over the course of 18 months.
Alex graduated from HRFS in August of 2019, but still performs at the Skybox Theater at Second City with the improv troupe “Horse Swamp.” He’s also currently a cast member of the satirical news show entitled, “News You Can Lose,” and recently starred in the short film, “Love is Simple.” In addition, he loves to play legos and basketball with his nephews, and yelling at the TV during Bears games with his parents. He’s extremely grateful to Gray Talent for their support, is eager to create cool stuff with cool people.
