Founded by Michael Freitas in early 2023, MJF Creative started as a slight hope for Michael. Dreaming of becoming a part of the publishing and creative industry, they wanted an outlet to pursue each of their passions and to create a space for those who don't have their name in the industry yet, much like Michael when starting MJF Creative. Quickly after publishing their first Author Lookbook, it became a number one best-seller and hot new release on Amazon, taking them and this business to where they are now.
