Hey there. I'm Alexander Hotz.
I am a journalist and filmmaker. I cover politics, the environment, and technology, but I'm mostly interested in people and their stories.
Most recently, I started my own production company Fair Voyage Films and chased stories across Southeast Asia. Before that, I worked as the Multimedia Director for Coconuts Media, Southeast Asia's fastest growing digital media property.
I have reported from refugee camps and environmental disaster zones. I have covered revolutions, historic elections and violent protests across the globe.
I have produced commercials and sponsored content for corporate clients like Singha Beer, Sansiri, Microsoft, The 2020 Summer Olympics, Double A Paper, Vespa, Hendricks Gin and others.
In addition to me production work, I taught digital media classes at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, Bangkok's Chulalongkorn University and Webster University's Bangkok campus.
I'm a graduate of Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, where I received two fellowships to extend my studies: the Digital Media Associate teaching fellowship and the New York World reporting fellowship.
I have lived in Alaska, Puerto Rico, the Philippines, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Pakistan, Indonesia, Thailand, South Africa, Scotland, Myanmar, and others.
I was born in Durban, South Africa but mostly grew up in the USA.
