Alex is a Cuban-American actor, comedian, and writer. He received a BFA in Theater from Florida International University. Soon thereafter he helped create and establish the Front Yard Theater Collective, a sketch and improvisationally-based organization which bloomed commercially and is still actively working with the City of Miami to provide affordable art and comedy to hospitals, disability centers, and schools. After moving to New York, Alex began performing stand-up and improv at venues such as Gotham Comedy, The Peoples Improv Theater, Upright Citizens Brigade, TinyRhino, and Littlefield. Theatrically he’s had the opportunity to collaborate with New York Theatre Workshop, Theater for the New City, Dixon Place, IATI Theater, NYU Writers lab, Columbia's MFA Directors & Writers program, the Robert Moss Theater, Barn Arts Collective, and The New York International Fringe Festival. He's also been lucky enough to be part of projects overseen by directors such as Anne Bogart (SITI), Gregory Mosher (Lincoln Center), and Brian Kulick (CSC). As a co-founder of the Rabbit Hole Alternative theatre company, he's written, produced, and acted in a variety of devised pieces, most recently Curing the Void, which went on to performances at New York Fringe and Dixon Place. In 2016, he's been seen on the big screen at festivals such as Cinequest, Frameline, New Orleans Film Festival, and OutfestLA. As a member of The Lonely Painter Project, Alex has been involved in the discovery of The New World and Inhume.
