Alexander’s creative career has followed a polymathic journey beginning with success as a musician and audio engineer/producer, working with the likes of Annie Lennox, Mica Paris and Malcolm McLaren, to working as a communication design consultant and filmmaker for global brands such as Visit Britain, Jaguar Land Rover, Emirates and BBC.
