hi, i’m aj.
generally, i spend my time trying to improve the world we live in whilst enjoying the world in which we live. it can make planning the day pretty tricky. admittedly though, in so doing, i’ve learned how creating lucid imagery & sharing radiant, human-centric stories can help me do both.
my love for the arts is rivaled only by my passion for the people & narratives that make great images/films sing. personally, i believe that it’s easy to like someone (or something) so long as you know their story. whether you’re a seasoned brand, global organization, budding non-profit or individual, chances are i’d love to help tell yours.
as a freelance photographer, filmmaker, art director and creative strategist, i’ve had the blessing & opportunity to take on a variety of photo, video, & open-ended assignments. select clients include the MLS, LAFC, New Balance, Camelbak, Bindle Bottle, Puma, Joma, The Black Tux, Saola Shoes, Run Janji, WorldSoccerShop.com, the Victory Journal, Kicks to the Pitch, 8 by 8 Magazine, Howler Magazine, The Outbound Collective, Judah & the Lion, the United States Men’s & Women's National Soccer Team(s), CBRE and the Office of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. my range of experiences across the editorial, commercial, & artistic spaces make me a nimble creator that excels at balancing the technical & creative aspects of work, evaluating their relative importance & weight with respect to your mission & goals.
drop me a line. indeed, these are exciting times, and i look forward to having the opportunity to get to know you and making something that matters, together.
