After a quick stint on The Amazing Race Season 7, Alexander opened his own PR firm, The Society Group, in 2007 at the age of 27. Armed with only one client, Alexander launched his PR career by taking comedian Adam Carolla's podcast and turning it into the Guinness World Record for “Most Downloaded Podcast” and the #1 podcast on iTunes. The Society Group went on to secure four NY Times bestsellers using targeted pre buzz campaigns for their comedian clients including, Tim Ferriss’ “The 4 Hour Chef” from Amazon Publishing.
