Alex Rizzo

A native of New Jersey, Alex was born into a creative family. As a child, he spent much of his free time as an assistant to his mother, a photographer, in setting up equipment and compositions, learning the craft all the while. In middle school, he took quickly to creative writing and had poems and a short story published in a book celebrating young student writers from New Jersey. He took these experiences to heart and graduated from Hofstra University in May 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts in Film Production and Studies with a minor concentration in English. While at Hofstra, he met director Ben Mehlman, and together they worked on many projects. This partnership has culminated with Between the Forest and the Field, the thrilling tale of a young boy striving to grow in an unfamiliar environment.
