Remember when MTV actually played music? We do. Alexis heads up business development for MOX, concluding strategic relationships, masterminding content acquisition and partnerships, and industry relations, along with a team of music obsessed ninjas. MOX is what MTV would be if it launched in 2013: an online interactive music television channel. We redefine the music video experience by offering both a lean back 24/7 live stream as well as a deep archive of content to discover and share. With studios in both Hollywood and Manhattan, MOX brings the latest music videos, news, interviews, festival coverage, studio sessions, and original episodic programming to hungry music fans on any connected device.
