Writer Biography - DANNY ALEX

Writing is one of two loves in my life that I have an absolute passion for. Creative writing blended with creative thinking. Emotion blended with logic. Capturing human experiences in words that invoke an emotional response from the reader.

I have worked at and created content for over 30 years from songwriting, creating online websites and content, TV commercials, and writing TV script and screenplays. I am a successful businessman and own and operate a highly successful internet and media business with annual revenues in the high seven digits. Understanding complex cost structures and the details of business is integral to any project, creative writing and scripts are no exception.

I began my creative energy in music at the age of 7, when I got my first guitar. At the age of 16, I began writing and recording songs. I continued to do so for almost 15 years. I majored in English at the University of Calgary and have applied my writing skills in a number of areas, including creative, business, and online content. I founded BRAVADA International in 2007, an internet and media company located in Los Angeles.

As a successful businessman, I understand creative writing is as much an art as it is a business. Everything must have a business case that makes sense. TV is no different. The end product must be compelling and inspire emotional investment to become successful and that means multi-dimensional characters and a gripping story filled with mystery, suspense, and the human experience.
