A Little About Myself
My name is Henry Saint-Jean. I was born in Haiti and I got to the U.S. in my early teens. I went to High School and College in Brooklyn, New York. Like most of graduate High School students, I wasn't sure of what I would like for my career (too many options!). One thing for sure is that I always like drawing and do something creative with pictures. I used to get magazines and books (not to read them), but to search and draw interesting images like super heroes, athletes, nature, and favorite Bible characters. Long story short, my love for pictures is what got me into motion pictures world! Best of all, I met my beautiful wife, Laurie, who fully supports my passion. We both love spending time together in helping our community with spiritual needs, visiting new countries, watching Netflix, and much more.
How Piximpress Started
It all started back on April 2006 in Brooklyn NY, when 2 friends and I decided to provide photography, videography, and sound services to couples getting married. Interestingly, I started out as the DJ, moved up the ranks to become the photographer until I found my true calling which is being the filmmaker! It didn't take long when I decided to make it my future career and this sparked Piximpress in 2014! The name was created after the reaction I received from those who watched my works. They usually say "I'm impressed" or "this is impressive". Creatively, I choose the word “pix” (short for pictures) combined it with “impress” and voila... PIXIMPRESS!
