About Alex

I'm an independent director, cinematographer, and editor that's been dancing between documentary, reportage, and commercial work for the past five years. I'm based in Nairobi, Kenya, and direct/produce for Documist. I've focused a lot of my work on environmental issues, but am also very interested in human rights, investigative work, and arts & culture. I'm fascinated by the personal motivations driving our lives, and work to build stories around people rather than events. I've worked with editorial clients including the New York Times, the Economist, the Guardian, HuffPo, and others. My commercial clients include the Gates Foundation, UNCDF, the WHO, and many more. Shooting on a Sony FS5 with a metabones full frame adapter (4k, 240 FPS slowmo, 10-bit 4:2:2 in 1080). Glidecam, slider, and tripod available for stabilized movement, portable battery powered light kit, Sennheiser ME66 shotgun + wireless lav for audio. You can see my work at or
