“It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.”
– Vincent Van Gogh

Alex was born and raised in Orleans, Ontario. He discovered his love of theatre and music during his early high school years, and has been working on his craft ever since. He attended Sheridan College’s prestigious Music Theatre Performance Program, which he graduated from with honours in 2017.

He made his professional debut in Buddy: the Buddy Holly Story at the Globe Theatre, Regina. He has gone on to become a staple of the Sudbury-based company, YES Theatre, performing several productions, most notably as Grasshopper in James and the Giant Peach, the Canadian premiere of Violet, and Merrily We Roll Along directed by Mitchell Cushman. Alex has also done significant work with Smile Theatre, including writing, composing, directing and touring an original musical for the company in 2019 entitled Back to B4: a Bingo Bonanza.

Alex is a passionate musician and multi-instrumentalist; a rare performer who is as comfortable in the pit as he his on stage. Some his favourite musician credits include: Floyd Collins at Theatre Sheridan, The Rocky Horror Show with Ovation Productions, and Mamma Mia at YES Theatre.

Alex is grateful to live in a country where so much amazing theatre is curated, and he is excited to continue his journey, carving out his part of it all.
