Having logged over a million touring miles as a professional musician, he has also engineered and produced multiple albums for a variety of artists. J.B. has shot and edited short films, music videos, and has edited promotional videos for some of the biggest wineries in Napa Valley, California. He has appeared as an actor in several plays, films, and  TV shows, and is making his directorial debut with "The Killer Among Us". 

Initially written as a one-act stage play, J.B. redrafted "The Killer Among Us" as a screenplay, and has noted that the film is a homage to legendary half-hour horror episodic shows like "The Twilight Zone", "Tales From The Darkside", and "Tales From The Crypt". An avid film fan, Beverley cites his influences as Stanley Kubrick, Francis Ford Coppola, George A. Romero, John Carpenter, and Wes Craven.
