Alix

Bio

Alix is a writer, playwright and performer born and raised in New York. After graduating from Brown University with her BA in the performing arts, she wrote, performed, and produced five solo shows which she toured throughout North America. Then, to everyone’s surprise, she followed love north, and spent almost a decade in the deep freeze of Canada. She returned to New York (love in tow) to pursue her MFA in playwriting at Columbia University, and she has gone on to win multiple awards and see productions of her plays all over the world. 

In addition to her playwriting, Alix has worked as a freelancer, ghostwriter, and communications professional. She worked as the Manager of Communications for the Winnipeg Humane Society and The Winnipeg Arts Council, as well as a freelance writer for a wide variety of clients including the Ad Council, New York Institute of Technology, Columbia University, and Doctors of the World. As a ghostwriter, she has helped many clients shape their message, find their voice, and tell their story to the world. She loves working with students and has taught courses and masterclasses at Columbia University, Barnard College, Brown University, and Gettysburg College. With Cambridge Coaching, Alix specializes in expository writing, creative writing, and supporting students through the admissions process.

When not in a theater or in front of a computer, Alix is an avid crafter, experimenting in the world of cross-stitch, felt toys, and beaded wrap bracelets. She is a cat and dog enthusiast, having fostered and adopted many animals who went on to run her life and household. Despite moving back to New York, she remains a Toronto Raptors fan.
