About AJ Andrews

Just moved to the New York area. I work for Brown Paper Tickets as their East Coast Ambassador. At Brown Paper Tickets we believe in community & partnerships, and I'd love to help create some of that community here. I'm a creative thinker. I'm a Painter so I like to think that I have great taste in Music & Art, which in my own head, is kinda a big deal.

New York: Have A Drink On Us!

Now that the Holidays are over and the new year has begun, why not come out to Brooklyn & meet me, AJ Andrews, your local NYC Brown Paper Tickets representative? I’m hosting our next producer “Meet & Greet” in New York tomorrow at Brooklyn’s own Barcade.

Come have a drink on Brown Paper Tickets, meet other NYC producers and enjoy a little relaxation after the holidays! It’s a great forum to share ideas and create partnerships with other local NYC professionals in the entertainment industry. Ask questions, expand your creative reach and seek advice from others who have been successful! You can RSVP to this free event right over here.

I hope to host monthly events where various event producers can meet, mingle and develop partnerships in the greater New York area.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me!

I hope to see you soon! -AJ

New York: How Can I Help You?

I’ve worked for Brown Paper Tickets for about 2 years now, It’s a great place to work and I’m glad to be a part of this team. We ticket so many different types of events, sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all the diversity!

Personally, I’ve helped hundreds of event producers. I’ve provided producers with different perspectives on their businesses; ideas to increase their sales; or sometimes, I’ve just trained them on the tools available to them to increase their success. I’ve helped set up advanced seating options, checked IDs at doors, solved last minute issues and even donated my time to help non-profits list and promote their events. These unique experiences have provided me with a certain, uncommon, skill set which allow me to offer exclusive insights into event production. If I’m not familiar with the type of event you do, I know people who are!  I must say that my co-workers are amazing and inspire me daily with their experience and knowledge. They’re a great resource. Read the rest of this entry »

AJ Reports from the Occupy Wall Street Protests in NYC.

Hello there.

I’m AJ and I’m the East Coast Ambassador for Brown Paper Tickets. This new role has required that I relocate to the East Coast from Seattle. It’s a time of transition but this change has provided me the opportunity to follow my passions. I was raised in a home where active participation was encouraged and my family and I had regular conversations around the dinner table about public issues, politics, political leaders, history & democracy. While my parents taught us to think for ourselves, and to express our own opinions, we didn’t always agree. The most important lesson I learned from those dinners, was to find out the facts for myself. Which is exactly what I did once I got to New York City.

Upon my arrival in the Big Apple, I wanted to see what was happening at the Occupy Wall Street protests. So, one of the first things I did when I got into town was head down to Zuccotti Park where thousands of protesters has set up an encampment. After wandering around the park for a bit, looking for ways to help, I ended up volunteering for 10 hours preparing food for the protesters and for visitors to the park. The food was predominantly pizza deliveries, dishes cooked in various home kitchens and carried into the park by hand and salads made on site when other foods ran out. Unfortunately, this system doesn’t guarantee hot meals or a consistent, timely or nutritious diet but it succeeds in keeping the protesters and their supporters fed. Read the rest of this entry »
