He began his career in the ad agency world where a creative eye and a passion for events had him working on unique ways to enhance the consumer experience for clients. He designed innovative trade show booths, pop-up shops, promotional stunts and consumer facing activations for clients including NBC Universal, CBS Paramount Television, Kathy Ireland Home, Sprint, Mattel, Song Airlines and Turner Broadcasting.
In 2009, Jeff embarked on his own trail beginning his firm and establishing himself as a sought-after event producer known for a sharp attention to detail, imaginative creative energy, logistical prowess, public safety conscious and diligent work ethic. He’s been instrumental in the national success of the LA PRIDE Festival and Parade and has been a lead team member on projects at major national events including SXSW, Super Bowl, MLB All-Star Week, Final Four, Coachella among many others.
Originally from suburban Boston, Jeff graduated with honors from The George Washington University in Washington, DC before moving to Los Angeles. He enjoys traveling, reading memoirs, Italian cooking and staying active (so he can eat his Italian cooking)! He resides in the West Hollywood neighborhood with his partner, Rob, and his four-legged assistant, Rilo.
Head of Production
Luke Przybylski is a ten-year veteran of major event production, design and site operations management. His passion for live events began as a venue and production manager at live music venues throughout LA, including Sound, Exchange and Playhouse. Upon shifting his focus to large-scale festival and concert production, he quickly established himself as a leading team member with a knack for quick fixes and overseeing detailed builds, eye for decor and environmental design, and ability to assemble and lead wide and diverse site operations teams.
Luke has held leadership or management positions at festivals including EDC, Coachella, Outside Lands, Tortuga, Kaboo, Ultra and Voodoo. He has concepted, built and executed turnkey and sustainable high-end production compounds at events from the playa at Burning Man to the mountains of Pemberton. Brands including Heineken, RedBull, Land Rover and 7UP are among his brand experiential experience. Since joining JJLA as head of production, Luke oversees the daily operation of our fabrication studio bringing our design concepts to life for our clients, as well as supervising on-site operations at our major builds and festivals.
A native Angeleno, Luke’s charming personality and killer smile can’t help but leave our clients beaming. When not tiring himself out on our event sites, Luke can be found kicking his own butt in the gym, hopping a flight on an exotic adventure, or unwinding at home with his feisty frenchie, Luna.
