EDUCATION | ENRICHMENT | ENLIGHTENMENT
No matter who you are, or where you are in the world, society can sometimes distract us from being our best, happiest, and most curious selves. ​
Here at Creative EJ, we like to redirect our students back towards a life of creativity, independence, and asking questions!​
Check out our enrichment courses for a more balanced life – creatively, financially, emotionally, and even professionally.

<h1 class="font_6" style="text-align: center;">The "why" behind it all: About Us</h1>


Who are we? We are two professional educators who have been through a plethora of careers, jobs, disciplines, and LIFE: Josh Mattison & Emma Paunil.
Throughout our professional and personal adventures, we have discovered some critical focuses of education that seem to be missing for our youth and young adults. Our goal is to help creatively "fill in the gaps" with our Enrichment Academy, so that our student's minds will stay – not only curious to the world around them – but interactive, proactive members of society. In addition to leadership, professional, and financial topics, mental & emotional well-being is a critical focus of our academy as well. 
A little secret of ours: we both come from a background of – not only education & professionalism – but also entertainment & performance! As professional artists & entertainers, rest assured, we like to make things fun for you... and OURSELVES.

Emma Paunil


Emma is a professional educator, author, musician, and creative of over 20 years, and has taught at various venues and locations, including Epupa Primary School (Namibia, Africa), Film Actor Workshops, Imago Dei Middle School, Reid Park Zoo, Project SOAR for underprivileged, and even the University of Arizona School of Higher Education.

Josh Mattison


Josh has lived a life as a self-employed investor & entrepreneur for over 20 years. Since his score of experience as a residential real-estate business owner & broker, Josh has taken a passion to educating our youth on concepts ranging from the monetary system, what a true "investment" means, as well as encouraging our youth to seek enjoyable business as a career.
He feels that if our youth were given the chance to truly learn & understand financial education, they would make better decisions with debt & spending. In this monetary world we live in, Josh's passion is to ensure that our students at the academy have the chance to get out of the wage slave hamster wheel of debt, and to become the masters of money, financial freedom, and their lives.
