Youth and College[edit]

Born in Verrettes, Haiti,[2] Alexandre grew up Delray Beach, Florida, attended Atlantic High School, and played college soccer at Lynn University. During his collegiate years he also played in the USL Premier Development League with Palm Beach Pumas and Ventura County Fusion.[3]


Alexandre was drafted in the first round (12th overall) in the 2009 MLS SuperDraft by Real Salt Lake. He made his professional debut on 28 March 2009, coming on as a substitute in RSL's game against Seattle Sounders.[4]

Alexandre was traded by Salt Lake to San Jose Earthquakes on 1 December 2011 in exchange for a first round pick in the 2012 MLS Supplemental Draft.[5]

San Jose sent Alexandre to USL Pro club Orlando City on 7 June 2012 for a two-match loan deal.[6] He was re-loaned to Orlando City again on 6 July on a second two-match loan.[7]


Alexandre is a full international for Haiti, having played in three friendlies in 2008, starting against Honduras, and coming off the bench against Trinidad & Tobago twice.[8]
