As a producer, AJ’s talents are second to none. He over-delivered under impossible circumstances and was a key player in getting a pilot pick-up for the series.

AJ was the line producer for the first project I ever directed. I could not imagine having been able to accomplish all that we did without his expertise. If the opportunity arises, I would definitely use AJ again.
