  • Alexander writes fiction and non-fiction, prose and poetry, on topics ranging from surrealism to country music.
  • His first book, "Shake the City: Experiments In Space and Time, Music and Crisis," was published in 2022 by 1968 Press.
  • A fan of all things that accurately reflect the reality of Hollywood, he has watched "Barton Fink" more than 200 times.


Alexander has been writing about arts and culture for two decades now, starting with album reviews and slowly branching out into essays, fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, and reportage. An aging punk and former drama kid, he spent years working itinerant jobs in Chicago before moving to LA so he could finally put his training and skillsets to use. He was a 2020 fellow at the Los Angeles Review of Books Publishing Workshop, and has been writing for Static Media since 2022.


Alexander attended Syracuse University's Visual and Performing Arts program, with a major in Drama.
