Eljay’s Instagram project, “Why I Love New York City” started with a chance meeting with Nenita, his wife, on w57th street and 7th avenue. The Instagram project pays homage to the city that brought him the love of his life.

He currently lives in Central New Jersey, just a few train stops away from New York City, where he works for one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the world. He’s partnered with many celebrities (Meghan Markle, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Doctor Mike, Bethany Watson and Cast of SUITS) and brands (Nautica, Live On NY, USA Network and many NYC Hotels) while maintaining a healthy work and family life. He currently has one child Jordan and is expecting his 2nd in August 2019.
