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. Seeing a need to use modern digital communications tools to help cause-focused organizations, he co-founded Visceral in 2006 and has spent every day since crafting brands and experiences for visionary people, organizations and ideas that are working to make the world better.

Jay is a founding member of the San Diego Leadership Alliance, member of Business for Good 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 amazing 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, the B Corp movement, and carne asada tacos.
