Alexander grew up in a Jewish family and continues to practice Judaism to this day, as a member of the United Synagogue Youth (USY) group. He made his first film debut at the age of two in 1996, starring in both the movie “City of Angels” as a little boy in the TV series “Bailey Kipper’s POV” and the younger version of Kipper in the episode “Teacher, Docent”.
Alex grew up in Los Angeles, where he was homeschooled, and in his senior year of high school was elected president of the USY group in his place.

Hobbies, favorite things and interesting facts
