A.J. has lived on both sides of the recording booth from PA to Producer on the outside, and on the inside, serving as the voice of Edna Mode's Security Guard in The Incredibles, Lightning McQueen's Biggest Fan in Cars and Cars 3, The Death Bowl Announcer from Telltale Games Minecraft Story Mode as well as Game Show Host of Drivetime. FM’s Super Fan Showdown.

A.J. has a passion for character driven narrative. Over his career, he has worked at Pixar Animation Studios, Telltale Games, Drivetime.FM and most recently, Evil Eye Pictures. He has also spent time as a video store clerk, egg farmer, truck driver, bartender, high school teacher and rugby player. He has a BA in Communication with an emphasis on Television Production from Santa Clara University and a Teaching Credential from Dominican University. He is a proud member of SAG-AFTRA and the Producers Guild of America. He resides in Sonoma, California with his wife and two children and loves the fact that his mother owned the first video store in Sonoma in 1982.

How To Attend

You can attend our next Professional Invitational one of two ways:

• There are 15 standard spaces available for normal attendance, which gives you the opportunity to read for and receive feedback from our guest. (these will go fast!)

• There are also 15 audit spaces for students who wish to attend the interview and Q&A without performing during the final part of class - which is a great way to learn about the industry regardless of your experience level.

About The Professional Invitational

The Professional Invitational features a different guest each time. During the first hour, Sally interviews our guest about their background, creative process, and how they audition and select talent. Then we open the floor to questions from the audience. Finally, 15 students will read copy and receive feedback from our guest.
