About Arjan

Arjan was born and raised in Whittier, California, where he would always hang out with his three best pups, Scout, Gigi, and Lola. He moved to LA when he attended USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, where he earned his degree in Cinematic Critical Studies. Now he can be found curating Doggie Bliss’ social media, walking dogs, and writing screenplays. Whenever he makes time to go to Whittier, he has to spend plenty of time running around with his family’s dogs. Besides photographing dogs, Arjan enjoys spending his time watching a new TV show or movie, surfing, reading, and writing.
