Alex is an improviser and photographer in the Los Angeles area, CA. He took his first improv class in 2015 after listening to an interview with Alan Alda talk about how improvisation is useful to science communicators. He quickly fell in love with the art form and discovered that he enjoyed performing on stage.
He studied improv at Endgames Improv in San Francisco, the Atlanta Improv Dojo and Dad’s Garage in Atlanta, M.i.’s Westside in Los Angeles, and Camp Improv Utopia across the United States. He has studied and enjoyed many different forms and styles, including the monoscene, the Armando, Close Quarters, JTS Brown, and narrative improv. The teachers who have greatly influenced him include Amanda Rountree, Jim Karwisch, Chris Alvarado, Carla Cackowski, and Craig Cackowski.
Alex is big into improv history, including the origins of forms, the development of different schools of thought, and local histories. He is also a well regarded photographer of many improv shows, an enthusiastic plant and insect identifier, and an acclaimed salsa maker.
