Faces of J2: Meet Erin

Name: Erin Ross

Title: Production Assistant

Q: Tell us how you got started doing what you do!

A: I began working in the production world through my interest in theatre. I got my certification in makeup artistry with the intent of working with live entertainment, but found myself working for film and photography projects. It wasn’t long until I started working for J2 as a makeup artist and then progressing here as a video producer!

Q: Where did you go to school?

A: Maxima School of Makeup Artistry

Q: What do you love most about your job? 

A: The best thing about my job is the people I work with. I truly couldn’t ask for a more fun, open, and creative environment to work in!

Q: What are you doing when you’re not working?

A: When I’m not working, I am usually swing dancing and playing music. And when I’m not doing those things, I’m most likely hanging out with my cats and listening to music in bed for hours on end.

Q: What’s your favorite film and why?

A: Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd will always have my heart as one of my favorite movies because it’s such a dark take on an already dark musical. Marie Antoinette, Back to the Future, Nowhere Boy, and Moulin Rouge take a close second though.

Q: What are three random facts we don’t know about you?

A: I have been playing guitar for 8 years.

I believe that breakfast foods are the best foods.

I live with a partially one-eyed cat named Dennis.
