Taylor-Alexis (she/her/hers) is a native New Yorker with a Caribbean background who believes in the power of humor in art and life. She received her Bachelors of Science in Accounting from Pennsylvania State University and is currently working on her Masters of Art in Media Studies with a Documentary Studies Certificate from the New School. When she'd not consumed with work and school, you can find her trying and creating new recipes, checking out museums and geeking out over special effects.
Throughout her life, she has always found time to create which led to launching the Taylor'd World Podcast. After experimenting with audio and teaching herself how to edit videos, Taylor-Alexis wanted to learn about the film making process. She started a YouTube channel where she featured a cooking show titled SauTay'd (pronounced Sautéed) and Bloom with Tumors, a web-series on her experience with uterine fibroids. Upon graduation in 2021, Taylor-Alexis will have turned this web-series into a feature length documentary in hopes to raise awareness about fibroids.
Taylor-Alexis' quarantine film It's Fine has recently been featured in Barbican's 'Inner States' program and on the New School's Unprecedented Media. She is also the 2020 recipient of the Deanna Kamiel Fellowship Award that honors the legacy of Canadian director, Deanna Kamiel.
