CULVER CITY, USA // Mino Jarjoura is the Managing Partner of Hungry Man, the Production Company not the TV Dinner Company. He took office in 2013 after a 7 year run, as Bryan Buckley’s producer and Executive Producer. He has taken the reigns on countless high-profile campaigns, producing hundreds of ads which have garnered four Emmy Nominations, one Emmy win, along with numerous Clios, D&AD’s and Cannes Lions. In 2013, Jarjoura received a nomination for Best Live Action Short Film at the 85th Academy Awards for producing the short film ASAD. The film was shot in Africa with an all-Somali refugee cast, and screened at over 50 film festivals worldwide, taking top honors at the TriBeCa Film Festival and Michael Moore's Traverse City Film Festival, among others. Archbishop Desmond Tutu said of the film: “They deserve two Oscars: One for creative endeavor, and the other for contributing to the collective understanding of our dependence on one another.” Mino would return to Africa a few years later to produce the feature film, Pirates of Somalia.
After growing up in Toronto, Canada, Mino started his career with Hungry Man in 2001 opening and running the bustling Toronto outpost before immigrating to the US in 2009. He now runs Hungry Man from their offices in Culver City California. His primary focus now is the management and growth of the company’s 28 directors’ careers, Hungryman’s operations, and client service.
