Alex has led dozens of lauded campaigns and teams at high end studios including frequent collaborators Buck and Psyop, as well as via his own directorial practice.

Working across motion, illustration and design, he's done branding for everyone from NBC to MTV and helped make commercials, content and experiential material for Coke, Apple, Google, IBM, the NBA, Adult Swim β€” and what seems like almost everyone else in-between.

His years of experience lets him be able to give expert guidance to tailor work to engage at almost any scope, style and scale. He's seen it all as well, and knows how to navigate whatever comes up along the production way.

A One Club/Art Director Club Young Gun award winner, heβ€˜s also a regular thesis advisor at School of Visual Arts and has given talks for the ADC, SVA and NYU.Β 

He is also an ongoing thesis advisor for SVA and also shaped the final thesis class for the Mograph Mentor school, producing animations for charities while mentoring early career artists.

Iranian-Kiwi-Australian-American, happily married and currently dad to a cat and dog, he takes his work seriously, but himself not so much, and likes to bike, meditate and draw every day.Β
