What I Do

From listening to tales at bedtime, to dressing up as my favorite characters as a kid, I have always been addicted to stories.

Till I was 10, I couldn’t sleep until my father told me a story of my mother sang me a song. When they got busy with work, I would listen to stories they recorded on an mp3 player. After coming home from school, I would run to my closet, dress up and act as the character I felt that day. I think it would be safe to say that I had a problem… I was addicted to stories…

Jay’s attention to detail, passion, and profound understanding of storytelling make collaborating with him an effortless experience. With a background in acting, he embodies the essence of an actor’s director—unveiling character nuances and intention as if he were stepping into the character’s shoes himself.

Jay is a reliable, creative and conscientious storyteller who is a brilliant leader in his craft. He has been part of my theatre company, and under my guidance, Jay effortlessly taught my pre-teen students acting, co-wrote and directed an hour-long showcase in under 4 months when he was only 18.

I am consistently impressed with the passion Jay puts into his work. He spends so much time in making deep connections with his actors, which in turn allows them to trust him completely. This bond, and constant availability to discuss my character is something that really helped me give a performance I was proud of on screen.
