AJ was born in Jackson, WY and raised is in Provo, UT. Growing up in Provo as an outsider, AJ found comedy to be an amazing outlet, he soon channeled all of his energies into theater and film. From the moment AJ got his first laugh on stage, he was hooked.
AJ is something of an educational prodigy. He graduated from high school at the age of 16; a feat which he accomplished with his freshman year of college already under his belt. AJ then earned his Associates of Science degree in Japanese from Utah Valley University. He then enrolled in the International Business program at Vanguard University of Southern California, completing his degree in 2007. In 2010 AJ completed an MFA at the Dodge College of Film and Media Arts as well as an MBA at the Argyros School of Business & Economics, at Chapman University.
In 2009 AJ opened his own production compay, AJJ Entertainment (pronounced "A double J"). That same year he contracted for his first national spot for Mycocide. Since that time he has produced and directed a number of commericals and corporate videos. He also continues to consult on the side for The JCG.
