Jay is one of the first people I would look to for advice, regardless of the topic. He has an eye for detail and a vision of the universal. ... Everyone that knows him knows he is off all charts.
mikey
They're my school
To say Jay is open minded is an understatement - he is cosmically-meta minded. His creativity pours forth endlessly from some distant dimen ... sion and he graces the world with it through grounded, tangible, and reality expanding projects/products. If you have an opportunity to meet/collaborate/consult/be-in-neighboring-urinal with Jay then you are blessed with a glimpse of awesomeness.
