about Matthew Alexander
Matt Alexander is originally from Chicago and he then moved to Los Angeles at 18 where he became a film editor for the past 9 years, most notably he was an editor on the documentary “20 Feet From Stardom” that won a Grammy and Academy Award. Wanting a new challenge, he accepted a sales role at the Financial Tech company Ellie Mae where he was an Account Executive for 3 years. Now he’s at Salesforce as an AE for their small business team and still enjoys editing films and doing photography in his spare time.
I’m passionate about providing more opportunities for the African American community in the tech ecosystem. I feel like a very important part of providing that opportunity is delivering the information necessary to our community about those opportunities and how they can participate and even more importantly, “why”. With the monetary aspect of how lucrative positions in tech can be, I feel like that is a great way we can battle the gentrification and rising costs in our communities.
