About me

Student / Actor

My name is Alexander Kwiecien (KWay-SHun), but everyone calls me Xander. I am currently a Junior at the University of Texas at Austin with a dual major as a Bachelor of Science in Communications: Radio-Television-Film and a Bachelor of Journalism at the Moody College of Communication, Class of 2023. (#HookEmHorns, #UT23)

I am the Host and Executive Producer of "The What's UPDATE with Xander Kwiecien." Our show is a satirical take on the real news of the previous week.

I have been interested in performing and theatre for as long as I can remember. I continue to train in acting, improvisation, comedy, singing, and dancing. When I have spare time (I rarely have spare time), I like playing video games and Dungeons and Dragons.
