Perk and Parcel
AJ’s true passion is creating and assembling projects. Growing up, AJ spent every possible minute working on construction sites. Instead of summer camp and trips to the beach, AJ was sawing lumber and hammering nails learning a valuable trade from many skilled “old-school” carpenters.
This opportunity developed into a passion for film study. From a very young age, his dream was to work in the film industry and play some small role in the creative process of making movies. In 1996, AJ got his first opportunity working on the production “Southie.” He then moved to New York in 1997, where he accepted a position at Martha Stewart Living TV, working his way up the ladder to Line Producer, winning 3 Emmy Awards during his 8 years with Martha. Returning to Boston in 2006, AJ began working on movie productions in Massachusetts, where his childhood career goal came true with a behind-the-scenes job on a Martin Scorsese picture “Shutter Island” in 2007. AJ is also especially proud of his work on the film productions, “The Fighter,” and “Social Network.”
In 2012, AJ began building his first business, Above the Line Production Rentals a truck, trailer, and temp-solution equipment rental business, the only business of its kind, north of New York City.
In 2018 AJ started eFetch Express, a concierge delivery solution for temporary worksites utilizing smart locker technology. Being a dedicated advocate for Massachusetts’ film and television industry, the first location serviced the film crews at New England Studios in Devens, Massachusetts.
In 2019 Perk and Parcel entered the scene. A new mix of contemporary style and fresh food and beverages. AJ’s true passion may have been movies and cinema but as an entrepreneur, he shows he can build a fresh and new spin on a classic cafe experience.
