About Alexis


I would describe myself as a minimalist on the outside, Liberace on the inside. Originally from the majestic state of New Jersey, I now live in the Ditmars section of Astoria, Queens

Top Influences: Maggie Nelson. Liz Lemon. My father’s obsession with history + genealogy. My mother’s profound empathy. My husband’s ability to live his life with unapologetic joy.

Dresses like: the sartorial love child of Kramer + Elaine.

Educational Background: Born nerd. Dual major at NYU in History and Cinema Studies, where I also did a lot of non-fiction writing and ran the theater group for non-theater majors. Interdisciplinary arts MFA in Writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Second City and iO-trained in improv; I’m a proud no-drama theater kid.

Favorite Films: Hedwig and the Angry Inch, The Birdcage, Moonstruck
