BFA, New York University


Alexandra is a filmmaker whose perspective is informed by her background in cinematography, LGBTQ+ identity, and roots in New York City to a first-generation immigrant family. She loves nonfiction that pushes the boundaries of genre. Right before the world shut down, she was a segment director on the British series Tyson Fury: The Gypsy King, which chronicles the comeback of the heavyweight champion of the world.

Before returning to graduate school amidst the pandemic, Alexandra spent over eight years developing a multifaceted career producing, directing, and shooting professionally in the highly competitive television and commercial market of New York City. Notable professional credits include TYSON FURY: THE GYPSY KING (ITV), THE EMPLOYABLES (A&E), MYSTERIES AT THE MUSEUM (TRAVEL CHANNEL), LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS (NBC), REFINERY29, COLE HAAN, JOHN FRIEDA, GLAMOUR, and MILK STUDIOS. Her skills extend to post-production as well, with editing credits for YOUTUBE STUDIOS, REFINERY29, and many of her independent films. 

She has balanced work-for-hire with award-winning independent films: CITIZEN ZERO (2013), THE CANDIDATES (2018), and JEWEL'S HUNT (2019). These films have been broadcast on PBS, Independent Lens, and Fuse, and have screened in festivals and via cultural institutions nationwide, including DOC NYC, Big Sky, IFFBoston, SXSW Edu, the Smithsonian Institute's National Museum of the American Indian, and The Jewish Museum. Her work has received support from ITVS, If/Then Shorts, and the Tribeca Film Institute, and are currently streaming on Amazon Prime, Apple TV, and Kanopy, among others.
Now an MFA candidate at Stanford University, Alexandra’s growing body of work reflects her interests in pedagogy, performance as archive, global Queer cinema, Disability studies, and utopian hermeneutics. As a filmmaker and scholar, her work explores aesthetics that bridge fiction and non-fiction as this relates to LGBTQ+ culture, mental health, and the ethics of representation.
