Lexi Alexander was born in Germany to a Palestinian father and German mother. She is a former World Kickboxing Champion and a United States Marine Corps close-quarter-combat instructor. She worked her way up from stunt woman to Oscar-nominated director with her first short film Johnny Flynton, a drama about a boxer.
She was eager to learn a common language with the actors she would work with, so she studied at the Piero Dusa Acting Conservatory before helming feature films including the SXSW Jury & the Audience Award winning drama, Green Street Hooligans, Marvel’s Punisher: War Zone and Lifted.
Lexi Alexander directed episodes for TV shows such as ARROW, SUPERGIRL, SWAT and AMERICAN GOTHIC and has recently sold a movie to Blumhouse Productions & Netflix International.
Lexi continues to be an avid martial artist and is currently a passionate student of the Russian style Systema.
