Alex Jones intuitively understands the needs of deaf and hearing impaired people. Alex was born deaf, and hasn’t let that stand in the way of anything.
A graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Alex was recruited to Australia in 1997 by the Australian Theatre of the Deaf and has continued to extend his string of theatre, TV and film credits whilst also starting and developing two businesses. Alex was the Director of the critically acclaimed 2005 Deaflympic Games Cultural Festival in Melbourne - the first in the world - and toured around Australia with Heads Up! – a theatre-in-education production.
Alex has served as an ambassador for the NSW Government’s International Day of People with Disability campaign, Don’t DIS my ABILITY, every year since 2004. He was formerly the Chairperson of the Deafness Forum of Australia over a 5 year period; a peak body representing the interests of people with hearing impairments, or chronic disorders of the ear. Alex is the proud father of two sons.
