About Alexandria Williams

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’“ 

-Martin Luther King,  Jr.

I started Your Sixth Man in 2019 to work on projects for social good with nonprofits and startups. My favorite projects have always been with growing companies where I am able to wear many hats, from web development to writing and design.
In my spare time,  I travel (15 countries and counting), learn languages (Spanish and French), hike, and binge on indie and foreign films. I am based in California and try to spend some time in Miami and NYC every year.

I enjoy chatting with job seekers, fellow creatives and autodidacts, and English students seeking personal and professional development. Don’t hesitate to reach out!

“Alex made my job easy! She was pleasant to work with, met deadlines, and produced high quality editing work. Above all, she assisted us in improving our systems and helped to create and improve a style guide, which is now used to edit all our curricular documents! Thank you for everything, Alex! “

What can I do for you?


I’ve written eight successful grants generating thousands of dollars for everything from research to education.

As a writer of more than eight successful grant applications, I help nonprofits define clear fundraising goals, write successful grant applications and crowdfunding campaigns, connect with their audience through SEO blogging and create engaging educational content.


I’m a bootstrapped-maker. I’ve turned down funding from investors and sold my product to over 3,000 learners in 100+ countries.

As a maker and former educator, who’s successfully pitched investors and gained an international audience, I help early-stage education startups develop pedagogically-sound educational content that is engaging and fun. I grow their audience through SEO and content marketing.

My Resume

My most recent projects have included a mix of instructional design, writing SEO blog posts and content marketing, web development, and fundraising.
