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

I’m Alex Emerson (he/him), a filmmaker, photographer, and science writer based in Greater Boston. I’m an alum of The University of Chicago, where I studied Media, Arts, and Design and Biology – and I make it a top priority to communicate even the most complex topics clearly, concisely, and in an engaging manner. Beyond digital platforms, 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 closer to home, in the Somerville Theater.

Cameras aside, I am an avid runner, hiker, and sailor, and you can typically find me crafting new playlists on Spotify. Click around and take a look at some of my work – and stay tuned for what’s next!
