JA The DragAn: Independent/Artist/Producer/Engineer, Videographer/Editor/Director/Producer with a degree in Audio Video Productions from Cincinnati State Community and Technical College.
I was Ohio born in the great 88! The name JA The DragAn has some meaning behind it. The “JA” stands for my initials, or Just Awesome! The name DragAn was my grandfathers real name, he was from Macedonia (a neighboring country to Greece) and now rests in heaven, he was a very positive person in my life! This probably makes me the only American/Macedonian rap artist/producer/videographer on this earth... Unique and diverse... Some call me the Eminem of Cincinnati, I’de say I’m just myself, but I do look up to Em because he’s a lyrical genius and knows what he’s doing with the numbers and awards to back it up.
Video Wise: I edited/directed/produced every video on my website 98%, I was videographer in 100% of my video’s unless I’m performing or shooting a music video for myself. I can also do choreography and be a dancing machine if need be and have access to models and actresses.
