About

A rare shot of me in front of the camera with the UChicago Sci Com Team.

Welcome! I’m Alex Emerson (he/him), a filmmaker and photographer based on the North Shore of Massachusetts. I’m a recent alum of The University of Chicago, where I studied Biology and Media, Arts, and Design. Lately, my focus has been geared towards global health, filmmaking, and how I can combine the two. My films have screened everywhere from the National Film Festival for Talented Youth in Seattle, WA, to the Obama White House in Washington DC, as well as all over the internet. I also enjoy running and playing bass in a family band. Please click around to take a look at some of my work, and stay tuned for what’s next!
