Jay is a Florida-born L.A. based Actor/Comic.  He enjoys writing vague biographies about his life in the third person and French-Toast.


I believe in the power of art and the power of stories.  Stories, if told correctly, have the ability to transform people, and I enjoy being a part of that process, whether it is on the stage, behind the screen or in front of the camera.  I was born to entertain.


In Britain they call this a "CV"
