Hey, I'm Adam J!

Raleigh, North Carolina

I am a US Navy veteran with 5 years of service. I grew up in Southern West Virginia before moving to Austin, Texas in the summer of 1999 and then again in 2002. I have lived and traveled all over the world ranging from Germany to the Philippines. I lived on the island of Guam for 4 year during my time in the Navy and loved every minute of it but there was something I loved more, to make films. I have been interested in film since I was a child. I use to take my sisters camera into the mountains and make short films with my friends. I look back on my childhood and it gives me inspiration to do what I am passionate about. Filmmaking is my way of expressing my emotions for all to see. I currently lived just outside of Fort Bragg in NC with my wife who is a US Army soldier.
