Director | Writer | Creative Director
For 20 years Alex has been making stories about the intersection of people and place, with a strong emphasis on wild and rural places. She writes and directs brand films and campaigns, as well as independent documentary and narrative films. As a director, she is known for building deep empathy and raw vulnerability with subjects, and for creating work that is as earnest as it is lyrical. Her films have premiered at Sundance, won a jury prize at SXSW, garnered a Vimeo Staff Pick and been nominated for an Emmy. She is also a poet and fine art photographer. When she works with brands, Alex brings a rare understanding that comes from the decade she spent as an advertising creative director. Today she writes and directs branded content and commercial videos both through agencies and client-direct, but always with a strategic eye for the audience and an understanding of the ecosystem in which the content will live. Alex graduated sum laude from Middlebury College a long time ago.
