Perhaps best epitomized by his signature red sneakers and tie, James Loizou thrives between the worlds of "the creative" and "the business." As Senior Vice President of LAI Video, James can be seen in kickoff meetings, on-site, behind a camera, or struggling to decide between coffee or an energy drink. Under his direction, LAI Video has recruited a terribly talented team of creatives, building an Emmy award-winning video agency that’s known for its feel-good campaigns, docu-style series and quirky animation. Whether its producing one-off projects or providing ongoing marketing services, the DC-based shop regularly works with associations, non-profits and big corporate clients, including Deloitte, Nestlé and Amazon (to name a few).
For over a decade, James has also sat down with generals, economy experts, media personalities, ex-mobsters and other high-profile speaking talent to enhance their keynote presentations with cinematic visuals; to help the storytellers better tell their stories.
A graduate from James Madison University, James hails from the School of Media Arts and Design — a program celebrated for creating future LAI Video employees. After graduation, he studied architecture in Vienna, Austria. James hails from the Washington DC area, currently living in Darnestown, Maryland, with his wife and two children.
