I've always had a fond interest in visual arts, whether it was photographing the warmth of Fall foliage or filming a group of friends hanging out and editing it for us to watch and laugh at later. It wasn't until a knee injury, leaving me with plenty of idle time and a lot of creative energy, that Jon Alexander, the filmmaker/photographer, was born.
My journey of understanding and perfecting my craft began in 2011, after I graduated from Full Sail University with a B.A. in Film Production. I developed a passion to strike change in my audience mentally, emotionally and spiritually by creating a world for them to get lost in, whether it be for 30 seconds or 30 minutes. By utilizing my personal role in the community of St. Louis, I strive to offer a deeper look at just what St. Louis has made around me and instilled inside me. While currently working as a freelance filmmaker and photographer, I've previously held positions as an Associate Producer at The Nine Network of Public Media and an adjunct professor at Webster University.
I’m always in search of a new, creative challenge. So if you have a vision, no matter how wacky or embarrassing, feel free to reach out to me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
