AJ Winslow grew up writing and directing short films at an early age. Upon graduating from high school, he moved to Los Angeles, CA where he studied directing, cinematography, and producing at the Los Angeles Film School. Since graduating from film school in 2008, he was worked in many capacities in the film industry, but his passions remain to be writing and directing. In 2014, AJ decided to leave Los Angeles in search of a more fulfilling lifestyle and creative environment. That search led him to Bellingham, WA and Hand Crank Films, where he now currently works as a director and producer. In his free time, AJ enjoys hiking, snowboarding, and just about anything else that can provide an adventure.
