Energetic, gregarious, unpretentious and real are some of the words that describe Alexander. He is a Melbourne based TV personality and presenter, published author, entrepreneur, socialite and a multilinguist where he converses fluently in five different languages.
Bringing life and style together, Alexander's main goal is to always be true to himself and to strive to be the best person that he can be. Alexander has over 20 years of business experience spanning over three countries, beginning at the age of 24. From Singapore to the world, Alexander has travelled the globe, gaining invaluable knowledge and behind the scenes experiences which became the foundation for many of his successful business endeavours.
After graduating from the Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia with a Bachelor of Commerce degree, Alexander went straight on and founded his first company at just 24 years old. Under his astute directorship, the business quickly rose to become one of the country's most profitable companies where turnover was in excess of a million dollars in just under one year of its incorporation.
On any given day, Alexander juggles his time between managing his businesses, filming for television and serving out his other media obligations. Alexander is passionate about life and with everything that it brings. If you do not find Alexander in the gym, he might be spotted at events, concerts and theatre opening nights. Otherwise, he will also be spotted along the paris end of Collins St in the City as he confesses to being a shopaholic, holding firm to the adage of dressing up for success.
While Alexander enjoys being fully clothed in designer threads and labels, he still has his feet firmly planted on the ground. He enjoys spending his private time on the glorious beaches in Victoria and conduct readings for his family and friends using his prized tarot decks.
Alexander's first brush with fame started back in mid 2015 when he was approached by a publisher to write a business book based on his extensive business experiences but Alexander decided to write a compelling tell-all instead. This hence gave birth to his first book, "True Confessions of a Potato Queen" which Alexander took almost a year off from work, to research on and to write. His book was then launched in March 2016 at the "Chillout" festival in Daylesford, Victoria with resounding success.
Available in both the paperback and ebook versions, "True Confessions of a Potato Queen" published by VIVID Publishing, is available on the shelves of all good bookstores worldwide, online or available for a good read at any public library across Australia.
In February of 2017, Alexander made his first major TV appearance on the hit reality series "Date my race" produced by film giant Matchbox pictures and broadcasted on SBS Australia. Producers revealed that Alexander was offered the lead role after they had auditioned more than three thousand hopefuls. What was initially thought to be another reality dating program where Alexander would get the chance to meet his life partner on national television, it instead became a roller coaster ride for him. Alexander instantly made headlines around the world for his controversial opinions expressed on the TV show. Overnight, media outlets throughout Australia and from overseas jumped in and sensationalised his opinions which instantly set the internet ablaze.
Throughout the second half of 2017 and in early 2018, Alexander was kept busy filming for the highly acclaimed nine episode TV series "Everyone's A Critic" (produced by film production giant Matchbox Pictures-NBC Universal). "Everyone's A Critic" premiered 28 June 2018 on Australia's National Broadcasting Network, ABC. This TV series was nominated and emerged finalist for "Light Entertainment Series Production of the Year" at the 18th annual Screen Producers Australia (SPA) Awards.
Diversifying his multi-talented skills in entertainment, Alexander was contracted for 2 years running, as host for the "Miss/Mr Diamond International" (Australia) beauty pageant organisation in Brisbane.
On the international front, Alexander has filmed for the British TV series "Queer Britain" produced by the British Broadcasting Network (BBC) in the United Kingdom. Alexander has also filmed for South Asian audiences on the Indian YUPP TV International Network as presenter on its program, "The Glam Life" (produced by the OZ Star digital TV network).
In 2018, Alexander accepted marriage to an Australian fan after a whirlwind courtship and a surprise marriage proposal. Following the return of the couple's month long honeymoon in America, Alexander announced over social media of his indefinite retirement from all media work. Alexander has since adopted his husband's family name by having a double-barrelled last name, "Montgomery-Jones".
Of late, Alexander returned to University where he is studying for his Juris Doctor Law postgraduate degree. As a lawyer in training, Alexander is currently an intern at one of Melbourne's Legal Centres helping vulnerable communities navigate Family Law in family violence matters. Upon graduation from Law school and subsequent admission into the Supreme Court of Victoria, Alexander is poised to practice as a lawyer in criminal prosecution.
