All About Alex

I’ve been called a Shiny Bitch by an angry mom in the subway station. Sure, I don’t know what it means. But I enjoy saying it.

I was born in Staten Island, NY, to an Italian mother and a Puerto Rican father. I like to say I grew up in New York, but I’m often accused of being a Floridian, since, well, I did live in the Sunshine State for ten years. Whatever. New York sounds better.

Since living in Los Angeles, I’ve guest starred and/or recurred on just about every Jerry Bruckheimer show, and other shows as varied as Pushing Daisies and Justified and Parenthood and The Fosters. But I owe my happiness to the little show that couldn’t: Pepper Dennis, which lasted one glorious season, and in which I starred alongside Rebecca Romijn and Rider Strong (my husband and sometimes director). Since then, I’ve teamed up with him and his brother, Shiloh, to write, direct, and produce the first political commercial to air on Comedy Central. I’ve produced two films directed by Rider and Shiloh, “The Dungeon Master,” and “Method,” which I wrote and star in. I have produced a feature film TOO LATE, starring Academy Award Nominees John Hawkes and Robert Forster, which premiered at Los Angeles Film Fest in 2015, and have produced four additional short films including “F*ck the Parents,” starring Pamela Adlon (Californication, Louie) and twitter sensation Rob Delaney.

So, yeah, that’s it in a nutshell.
