Alexandra Marvar has designed and built approximately 60 web sites for artists, writers, small businesses and non-profits since her first project — her own photography portfolio — in 2006. She has been employed as a web editor for Vanity Fair, Jane, W and GQ magazines, Conde Nast Digital and Hearst Digital, and is currently a web designer for the College Relations Office at her alma mater, Vassar College.

Alex grew up between a ski lodge and a racetrack in Central Ohio. She studied anthropology and geology at Vassar, followed by a graduate photography program at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, Maine. She then moved to Greenpoint, Brooklyn where she worked as a web designer, freelance magazine writer and photographer, covering music and musicians, hydropower controversy in southeastern Turkey, and tsunami tourism in Indonesia. Her writing and photography have been published by Huffington Post, Vanity Fair, Jane, W, Good Magazine, NPR, and Time Out New York. She has lead photo workshops at City College of New York and DREAM Project School, Cabarete, D.R., and a photojournalism workshop at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

After a month of fieldwork in Aceh, Sumatra in 2009, she decided to shift her existence 100 miles north to Kingston, NY, where she works as a freelance designer and photographer, and as a co-founder and key organizer of the O+ Festival of art, music and wellness [www.opositivefestival.org] where participating artists receive free medical, dental and wellness services from art-loving doctors in exchange for their festival participation.
