Born in Mannheim, Germany, Alexander was a World and European Karate Champion. At age 19, after touring the world participating in competitions, Alexander decided to take up residence in California to pursue her goal of becoming a filmmaker.
Alexander enrolled in the Joanne Baron Studio of Dramatic Arts and the Piero Dusa Acting Conservatory, while taking classes in directing, producing and writing at UCLA. To finance her education and living expenses, Alexander worked as a stuntwoman specializing in martial arts. Alexander combined her extensive knowledge of boxing and filmmaking to write and direct the 2003 Academy Award-nominated JOHNNY FLYNTON. The movie, a true story about a boxer accused of murdering his wife and convicted on circumstantial evidence, focused on the moral ambiguities of professional fighting.
Following the success of JOHNNY FLYNTON, Alexander co-wrote, directed and produced GREEN STREET HOOLIGANS, which follows a wrongfully expelled Harvard undergrad, Elijah Wood, as he moves to London, where he is introduced to the violent underworld of football hooliganism. The film was released in 2005. GREENSTREET HOOLIGANS won many awards and was the only movie ever to win both the Jury and Audience awards at SWSX Film Festival where it premiered.
