Copywriter and Social Media Strategist
AJ is our social media strategist and head barista. He’s spent a nifty 26 years as a comedy writer, performer, and radio talking head. If you look back far enough you’ll find his standup appearances on MTV, Showtime, Fox, and Oprah. There’s also a degree in Communication and Fine Arts that he’s not ashamed of. And yes, he’s aware he just ended a sentence with a preposition. He also tends to refer to himself in the third person. Finally, since it’s wrong to pad one’s resume…the end.
