Born on March 24th (Houdini's birthday, too!) in northern New Jersey, Alexander (you can call him Alex) has been performing the art of magic ever since he received a Lance Burton Magic Set for his 4th birthday. Amazed by the reactions he got from his performances, Alexander decided when he was 15 that it was time to expand his knowledge of magic and attended the prestigious Tannen's Magic Camp in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania for two summers.
While at Tannen's, Alexander learned various performance topics such as stand-up comedy from Harrison Greenbaum (finalist on NBC's Last Comic Standing and star of the hit Broadway shows, The Illusionists & The Unbelievables), parlor magic from Derek Hughes (actor and finalist on season 10 of NBC's America's Got Talent!), acting from Michael Carbonaro (host/star of TruTV's The Carbonaro Effect), and business management from Kostya Kimlat ("Fooler" on the CW's Penn & Teller: Fool Us). Along with education from Tannen's Magic Camp, Alexander has also received additional education in sleight of hand from Bill Wisch (pictured): protege of the late Tony Slydini, a revolutionary magician who had numerous appearances on Johnny Carson and Dick Cavett's late-night talk shows.
Along with magic, Alexander is also a mentalist who has had the chance to audition for NBC's America's Got Talent! (pictured) and perform his show in some of America's finest theaters and PACs. What interests Alexander about mentalism is the fact that not much has changed since mentalism's mainstream popularity spike in the Victorian Era. Due to mentalism's primarily plain history, Alexander enjoys updating/modernizing pieces of mentalism from the days of yesteryear.
