AJ Jones

Co-founder/Owner/CEO

AJ began acting in Orlando, Florida, with Yvonne Suhor at Art’s Sake Studios. He then moved to Los Angeles to study at Playhouse West and the Elizabeth Mestnik Acting Studio. He quickly found success and the opportunity to further his craft in the Los Angeles theatre scene, earning an LA Weekly Award nomination as a member of the cast of “What’s Wrong With Angry?” at the Celebration Theatre. As part of the cast of “NO HOMO”, he won a “Best in Ensemble Theatre” Award at the Hollywood Fringe Theatre Festival, and performed at the Players Theatre in New York City as a part of Fringe NYC. He has been written about for his work in Backstage Magazine, LA Weekly, Broadway World, and the Los Angeles Times. He made his Equity debut with the Cygnet Theatre in San Diego, before moving to Atlanta to focus on film and TV.

In his short time in Atlanta, AJ has quickly gained consistent work in television and commercials, most recently on “Lovecraft Country” on HBO, “The Inspectors” on CBS, “Being Mary Jane” on BET, and a test for the upcoming series “The Liberator” on The History Channel. He has a passion for building community and loves putting actors on tape. He can’t wait to make Nova House the place where he can do both. Whether you want a good amount of coaching, or none at all, AJ is great at working with any style of actor, and will help you get your best takes with his relaxed, easy-going style.

AJ is represented by Tay Smith and Chris Young at BYSB Talent, Gina Henry at MI Talent Atlanta, and Heyman Talent.

Owner/COO

Gillian Fitzgerald is a powerhouse when it comes to administration and organization.  At the age of 21 she started working as a Personal Assistant to an improv entertainer and tv personality in Los Angeles where she got her feet wet in the West Coast Entertainment Industry.  From there she came back to the East Coast to spend 2 years in Nashville where she quickly climbed the corporate ladder for The Murder Mystery Company, the world's third largest theater company.  She has spent the past 3 years working as the National Regional Manager, overseeing 25 Directors, 5 Regional Directors, and over 1000 actors.  Her passion to give back to the acting community is what lead her to Nova House.  Gillian cannot wait to contribute to the fast growing community of actors here in Atlanta.

Marissa Grinestaff

General Manager

Marissa Kaye Grinestaff, comedic actress and content creator, recently joined the Atlanta market from Nashville.  Her most recent work includes creating and producing the web series  Almost Balanced Foodie. A short-form series about a quirky food blogger attempting to “live her best life, while writing the best-food-blog-ever.” Other work includes the host of the Nightly Nerd at Fanfest News, ABC’s Nashville, and Hallmark Now.

Marissa recently worked as an executive assistant at M Casting. Her takeaways from her time spent in the casting room:  be yourself. Auditioning is a muscle. Walk into the room, tell the story, and be authentic. 

Since moving to Atlanta Marissa began freelance branding and social media strategy for actors and small businesses. Most recent brand collaborations include Peach Dish, Good Girl Cookies, and Poo Pourri. Her free time is spent art directing photos, researching who has the best donuts, and hanging with her Aussie dog Cash, aka Mr. Business,  

Having community is SO imperative in this industry. From the moment Marissa stepped into Nova House she immediately felt at home.
