“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles…” ~Jack Kerouac
Growing up in rural Vermont pushed Aleksandr toward a life of “creative culture.” Early on, a love of cinema and writing took hold as a way to question belonging and culture, but eventually flourished into an overall passion for storytelling. In practicing various crafts Aleksandr was able to build a creative awareness and adaptability like no other, forging original and engaging narratives across visual and written mediums.
After studying in Toulouse and Paris, Aleksandr graduated with a degree in Marketing and French Language and Culture, and has since gained experience in LA and NY within marketing, film directing and production, entertainment PR, and fashion – all supporting a holistic view of art and industry.
Aleksandr can always be found developing new film projects, strengthening technical know-how, and learning about additional interests such as architecture, fashion, and music, all of which filter into his visual work.
At the end of the day, Aleksandr has an undying passion for exploring humanity through art, with film and writing remaining at the forefront. These passions are so strong that they sometimes drive him mad – mad to live.
But it’s the mad ones who make history.
