Our guest this week is George Alexander, an Alabama native, HBCU and Ivy League graduate, NAACP Image Award nominated producer and founder of Galex Media, a TV and video production company. George has the receipts from executive producing Coca-Cola and ESSENCE series, If Not For My Girls, starring former Destiny’s Child member and Greenleaf star LeToya Luckett but the beautiful video tributes for the ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Oscars Luncheon to name a few.
George gives BLK ON THE SCENE the playbook about how he went from an established corporate banker to a successful multi-hyphenate creative by utilizing his business skills to leverage his new passion for story-telling. He talks about doing everything from driving trucks to cleaning toilets on production sets on weekends in the early days of his creative pursuits which filled him with such joy that it made going back to work on Monday more enjoyable. Get ready to truly be inspired by George’s trajectory, determination, and joy in living a life with purpose and intention to tell the most authentic stories about our culture.
