Emmy and Peabody award-winning Producer and Communication Strategist, Lee Alexander was raised just outside of Washington DC, where she attended George Mason University and worked in Georgetown before heading to New York City. She is a partner at flaviebpr since its launch in 2012.
Her fascination with storytelling began after reading Hollywood Producer David Brown’s memoir “Let Me Entertain You.” This led into a gig as a 2nd Director on a 1.2million horror movie, then onto Good Morning America producing inside the control room and on location for world events like 9/11 in New York City, Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, the Wildfires in California to a Great Migration in Africa and the DNC/RNC Conventions. Directing large-scale events from remote locations is a speciality. Alexander is a gifted content creator who expertly coaches talent across platforms.
For the past few years, Alexander has consulted on social media and communication projects for clients in PR, Media and Finance. She also partnered with flaviebpr, executing publicity campaigns and media coaching clientele for appearances. She makes the impossible – possible and enjoys the art of public speaking and travel.
Alexander has over 10+ years working with top tier brands like ABC TV, ABC News Digital, Disney, Dick Clark Productions, Yahoo, RAI TV, The International Emmys, Kaplow Communications, Random House and more.
