About MJ

A relative newcomer to the world of television and independent film in the Maritimes! I've been involved with two full length movies as a PA and cast extra. I've worked as an AD on 3 short films and been involved with the first season of a six episode web series - both in front of and behind the camera! www.edgeoftheline.com.

I am a member of the NB Film Cooperative and look forward to new opportunities as a First AD and Screenwriter.
