ALEX-P

ALEX P.

ALEX P.

At every Holiday party since he was 6, Alex would read or perform something he wrote. Entertaining and being with people is what he calls a great time. Something unique about Alex is he really understands what it’s like to be a kid. Throughout his childhood, in 40 different declarations a week he’d say, “I want to do this or I want to be that.” While keeping his curious and adventurous spirit for life, he graduated this May with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Acting from Northern Illinois University. He will perform in his Chicago debut production of Deirdre of the Sorrows at City Lit Theatre this fall. What you can count on from Alex is his love for being with kids. Throughout his high school years he taught kids swim lessons and often during after school- hours or on the weekends, and it was not work to him. To him, being with kids is a vacation. His promise is that the Birthday boy/girl and all the children have a special, magical day and are left admired, appreciated, respected and lit up by the amazing kids and future generation they are.
