Over his 20 year career Alex has directed documentaries for a number of global broadcasters including the BBC, ITV, National Geographic, Animal Planet, History and Travel.

Whether it’s a natural history comedy for one of the world’s largest cinema screens (RISE OF THE TEMPLE KING – Orbi/SEGA) or exploring the long-term impact on families with autistic children (WHAT HAPPENED NEXT? BROKEN BRIDGE – BBC), emotional and engaging storytelling is always at the heart of his films, allowing audiences to access fascinating worlds they never knew existed.
