An entrepreneur, business leader with a hunger for experience that is contagious. Jay has founded multiple companies, including:

My unique experiences cross the divide between software development and manufacturing – a sort of renaissance approach to life, coaching and teamwork. Playing significant roles in the Young President’s Organization (YPO) and the Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) has provided further insights into entrepreneurship. As an empathetic facilitator, I’ve honed skills through off-site retreats and Forums with a focus on coaching in health, wealth and personal relationships. Being a focused marksman on the championship shooting circuit around the world provides for more unique perspectives on success.
