Alex is an Emmy award winning television news producer, currently hard at work for ABC News Nightline– developing, writing, shooting and editing an eclectic mix of news and feature stories. From breaking news to hidden camera investigations to celebrity profiles to long-form documentaries, Alex loves telling all kinds of stories.
Alex’s reporting has taken him to some pretty crazy places– inside Bolivia’s most notorious prison, a Ugandan village during an Ebola outbreak, the brothels of the Philippines, and a research submarine at the bottom of the Arctic ocean, to name a few. He has produced profiles on celebrities and newsmakers including Leonardo Dicaprio, Mike Tyson, The Rolling Stones, and rapper 50 Cent.
Alex has over a decade of storytelling experience, from network newsmagazine shows, to investigative print reporting to independent documentary film-making. He has lived in New York since 2005, arriving by way of England, Korea, Hong Kong and Kenya. He earned his master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University.
Alex sold his first documentary, “Queer Streets”, about being young, gay and homeless in New York City, at age 25 to MTV Networks, and won his first emmy at age 27 for his work on “The Miracle on the Hudson” for Dateline NBC.
To this day, he still can’t quite believe he gets paid to do what he does.
