Life has molded Alec into a story-teller and a filmmaker since his early childhood. Between the love and passion for movies and books that was shared among his family and how often they moved into different places and subcultures, he became adept at noticing how much the stories we accept and are repeated to us, shape who we are as individuals and groups. His first way of expressing this understanding in performance (he wrote poetry too but gladly those works will never see the light of day) was acting, to imitate an acceptable character wherever he was. He enjoyed the process so much that he carried on starring in school plays from his middle school years into high-school. However, he learned quickly that some subcultures need not be imitated.  Inspired by works such as a A Brave New World and Heart of Darkness  and spurred by his desire to escape toxic environment that the high-school drama club can be (raging hormones and even ragier egos are rarely a good mix), Alec entered a new stage in his development. He realized that art is often most influential (and more fun) when it both imitates and is critical of life. So he criticized the environment of hormones and egos that diminished his joy and made an entirely new drama club within his school comprised entirely of students who have never acted before.  He and his team of misfit actors went on to not only become the group of improv artists everyone loved to watch during their lunch periods, but to produce the first ever Cappie nominated play for his high school. It was sharing his passion, blood, sweat and tears with this team and seeing the joy it gave them that Alec started to take the idea of being a director and story-teller seriously. But time ends all stories and life separated many of them upon graduation.  So Alec carried on his passion for story-telling in the only way available to him; writing, which is what how he and Omeed crossed paths and cycle began anew. Now Alec, writes, produces, and directs new stories and is building yet another rag-tag team and have them surprise everyone once more (and maybe cause a little trouble too).
