draws, shoots, and drinks espresso.

hey, i'm alex, a visual artist living between coastal new jersey and outer havana, cuba. my work, largely illustration and photography, is composed of playful forms and gestures.

i live to see the world, to make art that resonates, and to collaborate with passionate people. i've been a photo editor in san francisco, mural coordinator in lima, peru, campaign photographer in new york city, and a perpetual doodler. i'm currently developing alessandra salamandra, a line of handmade artwork, with my husband raul.
