Alexis Beauford cultivated an impassioned awareness of socially relevant issues from a very early age. Her father is a former editor of the NAACP magazine “The Crisis,” and was a significant influence on her writing, which appeared in several independent newspapers after she graduated from Cal State Northridge in 2003. Immediately after college, Alexis worked at a non-profit organization for children in Los Angeles, assisting the department with researching alternative sources of funding and writing grant proposals. Since then, Alexis has ventured into the world of production, having worked at several top commercial production companies, including Believe Media, Biscuit Films, Epoch Films, and Non-Fiction. IN addition, she has worked as a production coordinator at Moving Parts, which recently produced a presentation piece for the Los Angeles Free Clinic for NBC. Alexis is an ardent supporter of human rights, and believes that every single person has an important story to tell. As a Los Angeles native, she is particularly invested in “The Row,” and continues to be inspired by the remarkable individuals involved in the making of this film.
