About Us


That has always been J. Thor's motto. Most people lack the technical expertise or the creative vision to bring their event together. J. Thor Productions brings over 20 years of knowledge and design experience. This provides our clients with the highest level of production value and painless planning.

J. Thor Productions, Inc was founded in 2000 by J. Thor Gogolen. He's been involved in event planning since his teen years, designing sets for school plays. He eventually combined his knowledge of audio, video, and lighting to start a home-based company.  What started in his garage has grown into a successful business becoming a leading provider of producing and executing live event productions.


Through hard work, growth, and strategic planning it has brought the company much success and has built a strong foundation.  J. Thor Productions, Inc. has been on the lists of the 50 Fastest Growing Companies of Tampa Bay and Inc 5000.
