In addition to Acting and stunt work, he began working in a variety of production capacities to round out a complete working knowledge of all aspects of the film and television industry.

    In 2007, JBA wrote and successfully developed his first television concept for Canadian broadcast and has since used his acting profile to leverage, build and maintain positive relationships with broadcasters and producers throughout the world.

    His behind the camera work has also won him many accolades including nominations for AMPIA Best Screen Writer (2017) (Drama under 30 Minutes), Best Dramatic Feature (2016) and a Governor Generals Award nomination for Canadian History (2016).

    JBA’s industry relationships, skills, experience and “hands-on” approach, make him a strong and valuable asset to film and television production and creative development.
