Switching careers is never easy, but David Murritta Jr. and Alexandra Creteau, known to the world for their Youtube channel, the Dalex Vlogs, have successfully transitioned between industries to reach their dream of inspiring people through Hollywood films. The vlogging duo led different lives before acting behind the camera. Still, despite the change in their lives, the power couple stayed passionate about entertaining people worldwide while simultaneously sharing their journey and experiences to impact lives.
Before finding himself in Hollywood with his wife, David Murrietta Jr. led a meaningful career in law enforcement. “I have degrees in criminal justice and general business, which is as far from acting as you can get. But very early on in my law enforcement career, I suffered a major knee injury. My ACL, MCL, and meniscus needed to be replaced. Ultimately, this injury led to other doors and opportunities,” shared David.
After the incident, David moved to San Francisco, where he first got his hands on acting. Doing a few projects here and there, David fell in love with the entertainment industry and made the move to permanently relocate to Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, Alexandra Creteau was a 2x Ukrainian karate-do champion. At 18, she was among the top martial artists of Ukraine. Although she had a rising career in martial arts, Alexandra Creteau felt as if there was more to her than fighting. And so, she fiercely dabbled into the entertainment industry where she met her now-husband, David Murrietta Jr.
David Murrietta Jr. is known for his latest project as the character named Moose in the film Taps, a short film about a grieving father as he narrates his veteran son’s demise after having PTSD. The film made its debut at Studio City Film Festival last November 18. It was warmly welcomed by viewers as it tackles the issue of many veterans having PTSD after their service. The film has been integral in opening up conversations for veterans with PTSD and has encouraged many to let their stories be heard.
Furthermore, David Murrietta Jr. has appeared in various television shows, such as Sunset Glory: Doolittle’s Heros and Grey’s Anatomy. The actor has also worked on several films, including Internal Conflict, Vicious Circle, Underdog, and Land of the Haunted Dolls. David was also one of the stunt performers in Marvel’s Black Widow.
On the other hand, Alexandra Creteau is continually making her home country proud through her successful Hollywood projects. She has starred in films and TV series, including American Horror Story (worked as a stand-in), X-Men: New Mutants (worked as a stand-in), Night of the Naked Dead, and, most recently, The Memory Scanner, where she took the lead role. The Memory Scanner is a film featuring a neuroscientist helping to radically change the criminal justice system with an innovative brain scanner. The film is set to release in 2022 but is already generating a buzz in the Hollywood film scene.
At 21, Alexandra Creteau is leading a rapidly-rising career in the entertainment industry. She is also making her way as the author of a mysterious crime novel called Miami Scandal: A Crime International Romance. Alexandra Creteau has also produced and directed her own short film called The Imperfect Seduction.
