Alexander was born in Boston, MA and was raised in Wallingford, CT near the prep school Choate Rosemary Hall. The son of a teacher there, he graduated Choate before moving to New York City to study at the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU.

He is a playwright by way of performing and music. He has done jobs onstage and off, and has played music in classical and contemporary groups. Along the way, he lived in Montana to work on a ranch, and in Italy to study Commedia dell’Arte. He also co-founded a children’s company Turtle Dance Music, in which he performed inclusive music shows for children and children with disabilities in libraries in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania, and developed arts-integrated education programs for public schools in Hartford, CT.

His plays have been performed in New York City, as well as across the country and in the UK. He has worked with theatre companies such as Theater Reconstruction Ensemble, Fresh Ground Pepper, Missing Bolts Productions, NoPassport Theatre Alliance, Story People Theatre Group, Nylon Fusion Collective, and Altruistic Theatre Company, as well as with AFTER ORLANDO: A Global Theatre Action.

He received his MFA in Playwriting at The New School for Drama, and most likely on his bicycle at the moment.

    It’s spring at Hanover Academy, which marks the beginning of Salute, a tradition in which seniors rush to hook up with as many freshmen as possible before graduating.

An exposé about the incident suggesting more revelations about the school has come out right before alumni weekend. The old dean of students is getting a dormitory dedicated to him, yet still fears the young are coming for him, and does his best to control those around him. When a former student returns after...
    It’s been one year since a freshman girl was raped during the Senior tradition of Salute at Hanover. An exposé about the incident suggesting more revelations about the school has come out right before alumni weekend. The old dean of students is getting a dormitory dedicated to him, yet still fears the young are coming for him, and does his best to control those around him. When a former student returns after ten years, he confronted with past transgressions and is unwittingly led to own destruction.
  • Consumed
    Luke has come home for a visit, but is strangely quiet. His mother thinks it’s a good time to host a big dinner. When an unexpected and last-minute guest arrives, the innocent get-together cracks open the traumatic cycles that haunts the family, and brings mother and son to a crossroad.
  • The Intern of Two Startups
    Cory is stuck in an work-from-home internship that she only got because she lied that she was a man. When she stumbles on a job she may be perfect for, she fakes her way into an interview. Unfortunately for her, this new company is merging with the company she already works for, and her boss wants to call in her male alter ego for the job. Now she must pretend to be both people, and not lose any of her jobs.
