I am a communications designer working at the intersection of image, stories and physical space, to enhance our understanding of the interconnectedness of all ideas, beings, places and objects. I work with businesses, organizations and individuals with purpose, who serve people and the planet as well as their own bottom line.

Before pursuing my own creative practice in New York City, I was mentored by Marianna Leuschel of New Agency (formerly L Studio). This evolving collaboration has included contributions to strategy and visual design for myriad projects in sustainable land use - from conservation to urban design.

I hold a bachelor’s degree from New York University and an MFA from the School of Visual Arts. I was born and raised in the Sacramento Valley and surrounding coastal foothills. Though I live in New York City, I maintain a deep love for California’s wild and working lands.

I recently developed a course on copywriting for Skillshare. To gain insights on crafting stories that inspire action, sign up for the class and follow along at your own pace!

Having worked in large companies as well as start-ups, I would highly recommend Alex and her skill sets to anyone. She takes the time to understand your business or project and becomes a partner in collaborating on the best way to accomplish your goal. She is a strong message creator: highly creative as well as being organized and delivering when she says she is going to deliver. She treats each project as if it was her own and is passionate about the end product she delivers.
