Originally from Guadalajara, Mexico, Alejandro has made significant contributions to numerous critically acclaimed films and commercials, showcasing his versatility as a director across various genres. 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.” This experience provided him with insight into the branded content arena, which he has further utilized with other brands such as Energizer and Avon.

Additionally, Alejandro has directed commercials for numerous brands, and his work earned him a Best Director nomination at the Pantalla de Cristal advertising awards, one of Mexico’s premier media industry events. In 2015, he was awarded the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship to pursue 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. José,” which he wrote and directed, received generous accolades in 2018. It was 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 the “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,” the 2nd place winner of the “Avon Speaks Out Against Domestic Violence” at the Guanajuato International Film Fes-tival, and “Self-Preservation,” winner of the “Best Narrative Short Film” at the EcoFilm Festival.
