Alex Seitz is into a little bit of everything. “When you grow up on the North Dakota prairie, you learn to keep busy or you freeze to death,” Alex says with a laugh.
From law to live music, backcountry skiing to pond hockey, his video production and communication skills stem from an unconventional mix of scholarship and life experience.
Alex holds a bachelor’s degree from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn. and a juris doctorate from William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul. He served time in the Minnesota Attorney General’s office before sidelining the practice of law for one of his true passions: music. Alex was a publicist for local music label Red House Records before joining Haberman as a public relations account executive in 2006.
Today, Alex is Haberman’s motion producer. He created notable U.S. Pond Hockey Championships videos starring past Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty and NHL legend Tom Chorske, as well as an ESPN ad. He’s also produced videos for Annie’s, Boise, Brightcove, CodeWeavers, Stratasys, UnitedHealth Group and many more.
Far from the desolate wilds of North Dakota, Alex has competed for the U.S. Bandy team at World Championships in Hungary, Russia and Sweden, proving that Phil Jackson, Roger Maris and Lawrence Welk aren’t the only international superstars to hail from the Peace Garden State.
Alex lives in St. Paul with the head of his household, a wiry German shorthaired pointer, Earl. Alex enjoys tracking down good-but-hidden live music, film, food and dog parks. Despite multiple sports-related concussions, he’s one smart dude who has put his creative mark on some of the best video and animation for Haberman clients.
