Meet Alex

Alex grew up the daughter of a diplomat, always moving from one country to another, but found her home in Brooklyn. She moved to NYC in 2006 and found that the city fueled her passion for history, education, and storytelling. Alex decided to start her own business with her husband, Jonathan, out of their mutual love for the city and sharing its stories together.

Alex has a Master’s degree in History from Brooklyn College and is a Certified NYC Sightseeing Guide. Her background in Universal Design Learning (UDL), differentiated learning, and facilitation helps her to create tours that are specialized to every patron.

When she is not running THE HISTORY COUPLE, you can find her at New York City Children’s Theater (NYCCT) where she works as their Education Associate. Alex is a leading member of the education department and brings theater and music to classrooms, community centers, and homeless shelters in all five boroughs of NYC. Alex assists in building relationships with new partners for programming and creates new curricula to meet the needs of every student in the classroom. She is also a Steering Committee Member of the Museum, Arts, and Culture Access Consortium (MAC) which is dedicated to accessibility and inclusivity for all. Before NYCCT, Alex was an Education Specialist at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in which she created programming for schools and families. Previously, she was also a Senior Educator and Costumed Interpreter at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum where she learned how to tell textured stories of immigration history as both a teacher and as an actress. Alex also holds a BA in Theater from Sarah Lawrence College.

“Alex thoughtfully addressed our conversations and questions.”
