His regional theater credits include premieres of Possible Worlds (Chicago Cultural Ctr.), Eagle River (Mary Arrchie) and Disappeared (Steppenwolf/Roadworks), The Killing Game (Trapdoor Theatre) and The Dreamer Examines His Pillow (Collaboraction) in Chicago.When not acting, Alex devotes a good portion of his time writing and looking for projects for his start-up production company Starna Productions. He also books gigs, sings/plays guitar and writes songs for (as a member of ASCAP) his band Permission.
