Alexander grew up in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. As a kid, Alexander was very shy and only got into acting because it was a mandatory course in high school. Through that, they discovered how confident they felt while acting.
They attended University of Toronto Mississauga, in conjunction with Sheridan College, for Theatre and Drama Studies.
Alexander began their YouTube channel on June 15, 2011. Their videos began to gain traction in 2014, when they became well known for playing LaFontaine in the web series Carmilla. In 2016, Alexander played Max in five episodes of Full Out. In the same year they starred in the music video Melete by Laurence Made Me Cry.
In addition to working as an actor, Alexander is also a musician and a writer. They are also the creator of the web series Couple-ish, in which Alexander acts as a main character, writer, producer and theme song singer. They play the lead role, Dee, who is non-binary, pansexual and open to date all genders. The series was funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign, which raised over $29,000 CAD. In 2016, the series was nominated for a Streamy Award in the Best Indie category, but ultimately lost to Brooklyn Sound. An Indiegogo campaign was launched in November 2016 to fund a second season, with a fixed goal of $45,000 USD.
Alexander is also the co-host of the Orphan Black podcast.
Alexander lives in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and identifies as queer and non-binary. They have credited LaFontaine, the non-binary Carmilla character in which they play, with helping them discover and accept their own identity.
