Who We Are
Before joining the STUDIOS team in 2015, Jeff studied law at Chapman University. Today, Jeff wears many hats, but is primarily responsible for operations and leading the STUDIOS team to achieve their goals within the industry. He’s a member of the Florida Bar and co-owns a luxury apparel brand with his wife and parents. In his spare time, Jeff enjoys running, hiking, and visiting craft breweries.
Al began his career in luxury outerwear back in 1979 when he followed his dream of building an international business from the ground up. In 2012, Al and Scott Bernstein— friendly competitor—founded ILOE (International Luxury Outerwear Expo). Al’s love for family, people, and his community inspired him to try his hand at law enforcement. After twenty-three of service with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, he retired with the rank of Reserve Sergeant.
Judy and Al met in 1984 and married one year later. While working two jobs, Judy studied nutrition at Cal State University. She saw the family business growing rapidly and decided her superior organizational skills would be very valuable to various aspects of the business. From student to controller, Judy has been a leader for more than 25 years. In that time she’s also found passions in her family, her German Sheperds, cooking, and gardening.
