Over the past two decades, Alex has established a career as a leading man in Australian and international live theatre and entertainment, playing principal roles in mainstage productions across Australia, New Zealand, Asia, and on London’s West End.
At 24 years of age, he landed the principal role of Raoul in the original West End production of The Phantom of the Opera (Cameron Mackintosh). Fast-forward a few years, he was awarded a Helpmann Award – Australia’s most coveted theatre prize – for his performance as Billy Crocker in Anything Goes (Opera Australia & John Frost).
His other leading roles have included Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz (Suzanne Jones & John Frost), Carl Bruner in Ghost The Musical (GWB Entertainment, Ambassor & Red Live), Brad Majors in The Rocky Horror Show (TML Enterprises), Greg Connell in The Boy From Oz (The Production Company), Robert Martin in The Drowsy Chaperone (Melbourne Theatre Company), Sid Worley in An Officer And A Gentleman (Gordon Frost Organisation), Simon Stride in Jekyll & Hyde - 25th Anniversary Concert (Concertworks), and most recently Giles Ralston in Australia’s 70th Anniversary production of The Mousetrap (Crossroads Live).
On television, Alex has had guest roles in Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries (ABC & Everycloud), Rush (Channel Ten), Winners and Losers (Seven Network), and featured in Carols in the Domain, The Morning Show, ABC News Breakfast, Mornings with Kerri-Anne, and more.
Off-stage, Alex has been a passionate advocate for a variety of charities, volunteering as a regular guest artist with Very Special Kids, and as an ambassador for Entertainment Assist and Global Citizen. Alex also provides regular support to local performing arts community events in his hometown of Horsham in country Victoria.
In 2020, amidst the live entertainment industry shutdowns, Alex determined to create opportunities for arts makers, conceiving and producing an online concert celebration of International Nurses Day, Heart Sounds, in partnership with Oriel Entertainment. Shortly after, Alex founded Maker Productions, launching a 6-part mental health web series, Sound Mind, in partnership with the Arts Wellbeing Collective, the wellbeing initiative of Arts Centre Melbourne.
In 2021, as Special Projects Manager with Global Citizen in Australia, Alex was an executive producer of the Australian segments of Global Citizen Live, a 24-hour global fundraising broadcast combatting extreme poverty and climate change, where he worked in close partnership with the Sydney Opera House and an extensive global production team.
