Alex is a 25-year-old mentally ill filmmaker who lives in her parents' basement.

Her upcoming work includes her first feature film, The Year Between, a comedy about bipolar disorder. In addition to being selected for the TFI Network, The Year Between was one of five projects selected for AT&T Presents: Untold Stories, the million-dollar pitch at the Tribeca Film Festival. 

Alex's short film Handjob played at the Chicago International Film Festival won Best Comedy at CineYouth. Alex is currently finishing post-production with New York-based project Bayberry, a virtual reality experience about gender identity in the 1980s.

As a comic, Alex has opened for Jen Kober, Adam Devine, and Nick Offerman. She is the national winner of StorySlam Oslo 2017 (the Norwegian Moth), and was a featured storyteller on this season of Norway's Got Talent, before she was deservedly kicked off.
