I am Alexandra. I am a writer, artist, creator and mentor to women. I left the world of film and TV at age 31 when things seemed to be just started to kick off for me…I was directing brand content docs for United Airlines, I was seated in a room shopping a new script with an Oscar winning director you would know, I acted in a TV show with Clive Owen, I had a script I wrote in a major film lab, read on a stage in Lincoln Center. My life felt glitzy and glammy but I was broke and drinking too much and the pressure of Hollywood was getting to me. I did some major soul searching and realized that it was time for me to change gears. I had never been a conventional gal, and my passion was and is writing and my spiritual path. So I packed up those passions from Hollywood and started writing and creating to share about healing and spirituality and lo and behold a few months later I had a book deal and was featured in the New York Times and things just started happening.
(My book F*ck Like a Goddess came out in 2020 and is still being passed around by many lovely women.)
Since then I have been running a coaching and mentoring biz, writing often, leading retreats, and moonlighting in a few TV shows as the me I am now. I moved from LA to Boulder, CO to live with my partner Eli on a mountainside and slow the fuck down and enjoy sunsets and hikes and tea ceremonies and give less fucks about who knows who and who is making what.
A few years back I started to see the shadows of the wellness biz and come back to my own roots when it comes to writing, being a woman, spirituality. That’s why I created this Substack. Instagram was feeling like everyone was sellin’ and yellin’ not to mention the censorship there.
My goal here is realness. Simple honesty. To have conversations that I need to have. To fill your cup and for you to feel less alone because I am saying the hard things.
This is a living diary and a book of my life. As a subscriber you get access. As a paid subscriber you are helping me with my lifelong dream of getting paid simply to write. And you also get access to the deeper, more personal pieces that I won’t share publicly.
Thank you for being here, for supporting my art, for walking this life together.
Why become a paid subscriber?
Because we get to hang more and get to know each other more deeply! Yay! Also, I would be honored if you would be a founding member or a contributor to me and my writings. This helps to support and give me the space to write longer and more personal essays for you.
