Alex has been an arts professional for over fifty years (he started young). He has performed at the Shaw Festival, the Charlottetown Festival, and on many other stages, in such roles as M. André in The Phantom of the Opera, and Feste in Twelfth Night (Dora Award Nomination). His performing career has taken him across Canada, and as far as Rome, Hong Kong, and Singapore. He has directed medieval music theatre for The Toronto Consort, electro-acoustic operas with Good Hair Day Productions, as well as shows at numerous theatres, universities, and colleges. In 2021, Alex directed one of the first post-pandemic public shows at the LSPU Hall in St. John’s, a physical theatre piece inspired by letters of Franz Kafka. 

Alex has taught for numerous educational programs including George Brown College, Humber College, Sheridan College, Laurentian University, the University of Waterloo, and the University of Toronto. He has also led workshops at the Charlottetown Festival, Claude Watson School of the Arts, and for companies such as Theatre Passe Muraille, Necessary Angel, and the Stratford Festival. He is currently training to become a teacher of Emotionally Integrated Voice (EIV).

At Grenfell Campus, he teaches primarily Theatre History and Acting, focusing on the student actor as integrated creator. As well, he has directed Three Sisters, Agamemnon/Antigonick, The Wolves, a pandemic transformed version of The Tempest (his introduction to online theatre), and last year’s ‘Harlow’ show Picnic at Hanging Rock.
