“I get so much joy in helping create opportunities for talented people to bring their creative gifts, and Jojo, Maddee, and Andrew have been perfect additions from day one,” says Eleven founder/mixer/sound designer Jeff Payne. Their individual and collective talents and skills are only surpassed by their incredibly good mojo. They are seriously good people, and that says it all.”
A Los Angeles native, Bonniot moved north to attend the University of San Francisco and earned a BA degree in Media Studies, while working in the University’s Events Management Department. She made her way back to LA after college and worked as an associate producer at Santa Monica music house Hum. Her event and music production background helped her find her way to Eleven, where she has taken on the role of producer.
Born and raised in the suburbs of Montgomery County, MD, Hart recently relocated to the Los Angeles area.
“I am so happy to become part of the Eleven family,” says Hart. “After relocating from DC, it is so comforting to have found such an ideal team and work environment. The client service/facility role is the perfect place for me to showcase my past event planning and personal assisting background.”
Growing up outside of Philadelphia, Smith has always had a passion for music and sound design. From playing drums to programming beats in high school, he has always known he wanted to work with sound. Moving to Los Angeles in 2015, Smith’s career focus shifted into audio post production, landing a six-month-internship at Eleven that transpired to his current role as assistant mixer.
“I’m so lucky to be able to work under Jeff and everyone else here at Eleven,” says Smith. “From the personalities to the expertise of each one of them, it makes working here so informational and enjoyable.”
