She is currently in post-production of four episodes of the Channel 4 commissioned eight-part drama THE BIRTH OF DANIEL F. HARRIS (produced by The-End-Of-The-F**ing-world-producers Clerkenwell Films, written by Pete Jackson).
Her short film JOY will premiere at the BFI London film-festival in 2021. The film was funded by Film4 and Pia Pressure, produced by Sabina Smitham and co-written by Amelia Spencer. Alex is currently developing the feature film version of the short. In 2018 Alex was selected as one of 8 directors for the Les Arcs Talent Village with an early iteration of JOY, which she developed further with the support of Danish director Thomas Vinterberg.
In 2020, Alex’ feature script THE CONFERENCE was shortlisted for the Torino Script Lab.

Alex trained at the NFTS and her shorts have screened internationally, amongst them BAFTA-qualifying festivals such as LFF, Edinburgh International Film Festival, Aesthetica Short Film Festival and Underwire Filmfestival. Alex' short film WALYA was nominated for the prestigious German Cinematography Award.
