A nationally recognized communications expert + creative director of experiences, Alexandria Ott has fifteen years of executing top-level strategic communications, progressive programming and effective marketing for designers, artists, hospitality venues, entrepreneurs and more.
She is a visionary, strategist + storyteller based in Southern California. After almost a decade in Chicago, Ott returned to her hometown of San Diego and has made waves as a creative entrepreneur. She is currently the co-host of San Diego Magazine’s newest podcast entitled Not a Parenting Podcast with SDM publisher Claire Johnson.

She runs a communications consultancy, Chrome City, with clients in both San Diego and Chicago. She is an avid LGBTQIA advocate and produces Drag Queen Story Hour as well.
Previously, Alex produced a forum for creative entrepreneurs called Hustlecraft and turned it into a podcast during the pandemic.

Under Ott, the agency represented some of the biggest industry leaders in hospitality, art and design.
