Alex Hirsch is the creator and executive producer of Disney Channel's "Gravity Falls," an animated comedy series inspired by real-life summer adventures he and his twin sister shared while visiting relatives as kids. Hirsch also voices the character of Grunkle Stan on the series.

Alex Hirsch graduated from California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) in 2007. During his college years, he created the short "Off the Wall" which garnered attention from notable animation blogs including "Drawn!," "Cartoon Brew" and "Cold Hard Flash."

Hirsch also plays the voices of Grunkel Stan, the twins' penny pinching great uncle, and Soos, the portly, lovable employee who loves to be in the middle of all the action.

Shortly after graduating, he worked at the digital entertainment studio JibJab and was a writer/storyboard artist on "The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack." He also served as a creative consultant and helped develop the hit Disney Channel animated series, "Fish Hooks," and voices the character Clamantha in the series.

Hirsch chose Oregon as the setting for "Gravity Falls" after spending a summer there during college working for the animation studio Laika.

Born and raised in Piedmont, California, Hirsch currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
