In 2010, Alejandro was selected as one of the winners of the Ford Mustang Stories branded competition sponsored by JWT and Filmaka for his film “Down The Road“. That experience gave him insight into the branded content arena which he has put to use with other brands like Energizer and Avon.

In 2015 he was awarded the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship to study his MFA at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, where he also became the recipient of the John Huston Scholarship for Directing.
Recently, his short film G.I. Jose, which he wrote and directed, received generous accolades in 2018; highlighted by the Industry Award Winner for Best Social Change Short Film at the University of Southern California’s First Look Awards, and the prized Best Student Film award at “G.I. Film Festival” in San Diego, an event dedicated to revealing the struggles, triumphs, and experiences of service members and veterans through compelling and authentic storytelling.
Some of his most successful short films have tackled various social issues, such as his film “Scars“, 2nd place winner of the “Avon Speaks Out Against Domestic Violence” at the Guanajuato International Film Festival; and “Self-Preservation“, winner of the “Best Narrative Short Film” at the EcoFilm Festival.
