Jay was born and raised in the PNW. Although he’s backpacked around the world, bicycled across the USA, and lived in several countries, he’s always found his way back to the damp gray upper left. Jay studied film at Oberlin College and FAMU, and two of his own indie-projects have played at national and international film fests. He went on to work on everything from screamer music videos to summer mega-blockbusters, with folks like Robert Redford, Oprah, and Samuel Jackson. When not working on videos, Jay will be outside in his gardens, tending his ever-growing collection of plants.
