Born and raised in Washington, DC, Alexandra was brought up in the multicultural epicenter of the U.S by a Mauritian mother and Jewish father. Alexandra's ideals and beliefs were formed by her parents who supported women's businesses and sustainability in developing countries.
Alexandra got into the film world in her late teens, after being strongly persuaded by her mother to attend a photography course, due to days being spent dissecting independent films with friends. The impact of her parents' work made an impression on Alexandra, bridging her appreciation and love, for both social causes and filmmaking.
With resourcefulness, a technical background and an intuitive eye for a captivating story, Alexandra moved into producing inclusive, diverse, and magical stories. It was time to fit individuals like herself into the mold, that could explore the spaces between reality and fictional elements.
Alexandra currently lives in the east coast with her partner and spouse, André, along with their two children. When she is not producing, she spends her time reading, writing, traveling, spending time outdoors, or whatever sane activity that can be managed during these weird times.

Based in Baltimore, MD, Boob Sweat are a collective of directors, animators, sound engineers, cinematographers, and editors. Our collective was formed while in graduate school at the Maryland Institute College of Art. The four of us were part of a majority female crew on a short film called “We Be The Same” during the summer of 2018. During a long shoot day in 100 degree weather in a house with no AC, we began referring to our endeavors as “boob sweat.”
As our collaborations continued over many more productions, the phrase “boob sweat” came to signify the empowerment we felt as a team of women on set. This empowerment continues into the content of the work we choose to be a part of as well. It is our firm belief that people who cannot be seen cannot be represented, therefore they cannot be remembered. We strive to create work which depicts the diverse world we live in and amplify voices which are rarely heard.
