Tirf Alexius hails from the northwest side of Chicago and graduated from Columbia College of Chicago with a B.A in acting. Beginning his career in commercials and films, he was soon compelled to explore the other side of the camera. After directing and producing several works including television commercials, radio shows, and various multi-media projects, Alexius co-founded Driven Entertainment - "a reflection of his drive to fully immerse himself in the world of film".
In September 2013, 4 Features Film Co and Driven Entertainment released their first feature-length film, the indie thriller, Critical Nexus. Critics recognized his ambition, describing the film as tense and pulse-pounding, but also brainy, literate, and intriguing. Alexius brings a unique perspective to characters; in front of the camera or behind it. Lakay is the third feature film he's produced and second as director.
