Jay first touched a computer around 1st grade and was immediately fascinated. While his parents didn’t fully understand this obsession, they were wildly supportive and bought a Commodore 64 for the home. Jay began programming at age 8 and his love for coding defined his path through high school, college and into the workplace. After co-founding Visceral he’s spent the last decade using the skills he’s learned to benefit organizations that are working hard to make the world a better place.
Jay is a founding member of the San Diego Leadership Alliance, member of Conscious Capitalism San Diego, and co-author of the book “Repurpose: Be Good At What You Do & Do Something Good”. When not working or volunteering Jay enjoys traveling the world with his beautiful wife, reading as many books as he can and pretending he’s still young enough to attend punk rock concerts. Jay is passionate about climate change, conservation, scientific research, space exploration and carne asada tacos.
