Jay grew up in New York, where playing with a 8mm movie camera in High School taught him to think visually and eventually led him to his career in video editing.
Now firmly transplanted in the Midwest he considers himself a dabbler with many diverse interests. He believes this mindset has served him and his clients well. His goal is to infuse each project with a unique approach.
Like George Harrison, Jay is considered the “quiet one” of our fab four editors. Over twenty years on varied projects has helped him recognize that listening carries the same value as talking. It also ensures his experienced opinion… sometimes you just have to ask for it. Don’t worry he won’t bite. It’s just his nature.
Jay is also aware of his limits… like writing this bio for example. He had one of our writers do it… uh, I mean… proofread it. He recognizes that he is an editor of compelling visuals and not complex vocabulary.
When not satisfying clients, Jay enjoys playing guitar, biking, and camping. He used to brew beer at home, but that’s on the backburner for now. Besides, his daughters aren’t old enough to fully appreciate that hobby.
