I am Alexander,
and I will …


I’ve worked on a projects in politics, law,  journalism, fantasy, and humor. I’ve applied both the Chicago Manual and the Associated Press Stylebook. I’m available to edit for you.


In my writing, I draw on my background in journalism, law and philosophy. Most of what I write is advocacy. Here are a few of my favorite pieces:

I also write humorous and thought-provoking short news items for This Is True. Most of True‘s contents aren’t available unless you subscribe, but here’s one of my pieces: “A Different Kind of Corrections.”

And here’s one of the most heartfelt things I’ve ever written: “The Moral and Cultural Significance of ‘Genie, You’re Free.'”


I’ve taught courses in law and philosophy for the City University of New York. And during my years at The Atlas Society, I delivered talks, in person and online, on a variety of subjects, including antitrust law, patriotism, and the essential points of Objectivism.


From 2003 to 2011, I was a graduate student in philosophy: first at the City University of New York, where I earned a master’s degree, then at the University of Virginia. While I never completed a dissertation, I did develop an exceptional skill at critiquing arguments.


I designed the print and ebook editions of Myths about Ayn Rand and The Republican Party’s Civil War, both bestsellers. If you’ve got a manuscript, I can help turn it into a book.
