Location: NYC // With BTR Since: 2011 // Facebook // Twitter

J grew up down in Louisiana and Texas before moving to NYC for college. After college, he decided to stick around and has been working in film and television production for well over a decade. He came to BTR in 2011 when he became Director Of Video Production for BTRtv.

Also after college, he got heavily involved in the local music scene, playing in various bands. This led to the creation of StereoactiveNYC, an umbrella under which to promote local music. Since 2003, it's been a showlist, a music blog, a video channel, and a sponsor of live shows. As of November 2016, it's also a podcast on BTRtoday...

Additionally, he's the executive director of Fort Useless, a non-profit arts and performance venue that grew directly out of StereoactiveNYC, opening in Bushwick in 2009, where it remained until 2014. While the organization is currently seeking a new home, it still holds events at other venues from time to time.
