President & Founder
Lehr Business October 2011
Alexander has always had a
taste for Adventures and Learning. He started his
own television repair business when he was 14 years
old by teaching himself on the job. Those
newly-learned technical, business and people skills
opened up opportunities for him. He started
purchasing income properties when he was 21 years
old and performed all the maintenance required
(carpentry, plumbing, wiring) himself. At the same
time, he began working his way up the corporate
ladder in the Industrial World of Electronics
(Customer Service, Industrial Sales and Purchasing
In his 30's, he became an Actor and also began
producing various independent theatrical shows.
After that, Alexander became Artistic Producing
Director of two separate Live Stage Show
Theaters in Hollywood, California. At those
theaters, he produced Broadway Musicals, Dramas,
Comedies, Shakespearean plays, Dance and Music
Concerts, Children's Shows and Poetry Readings. He
also sponsored an entertainment-oriented, community
outreach program for people with various physical
and mental disabilities. Since 1984, Alexander has
been managing his own Event Planning and Production
Company called Imagination International. Alexander
produced a feature film which he wrote and directed
("The Dream of Alvareen") and created two music
videos that he is very proud of.
This is the private home of
Alexander. Since 1970, he has lived in it and has
redesigning it with his own, special artistic flair.
Well over a hundred thousand people have
passed through its unique doors, over the years.
Theme parties, shows, weddings, concerts and many
other events have attracted people of all ages and
cultures. In recent times, The Manor has been
hosting International Travelers who are looking for
an unusual and charming place to stay.
This has inspired Alexander to want to create a new,
Boutique Hotel that will be based on the design and
entertainment flavor of his beautiful and eclectic
Classic Cars, Cabarets & Life
Alexander has always had a love
of Classic Cars and road trips. In 2007, he and his
wife Lisa drove across America in a beautiful, 1963
Studebaker Avanti Sports Coupe. He's driven some of
his other Classic Cars many thousands of miles
through many different states. For Alexander, it's a
way of seeing and feeling history through the time
portal of these wonderful autos.
Alexander's Father Eric was a
musician and nightclub owner and his Mother Natalie
was a singer.
It's his heritage and ingrained desire to entertain,
to host and to put smiles on people's faces
through the countless events that he produces. He
enjoys people and their stories. He believes that
humor, music and gentle communication can help
bridge differences that divide.
His other interests include decorating his home, Gemini Manor, writing
(screen & stage plays, books, essays, poems, etc.),
gardening, bicycling and Dreaming. Alexander also
serves on the Executive Board of Directors of the
Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic (for over 30 years). He
strongly believes that All people should have access
to good health care.
Despite his long hair, Alexander
was not a wild hippy in the 60's. (He was a
conservative businessman with short hair.) To this
day, he's never done any recreational drugs and has
never been drunk. He does get a thrill from living
and from re-imagining the endless possibilities that
