I'm Jay. I grew up in Texas, went to school in Arkansas, and work in California. I loved animation and computers as a child which led to becoming a 3D Character Animator as an adult. After working at Pixar, I joined Animation Mentor to help others from around the world reach their goal of becoming character animators (with the added bonus of furthering my own skills in the subject)!
I am also blessed with three beautiful children and an amazingly supportive and talented group of family and friends, all of whom (well, except the shy ones) can be seen in the various social media posts collected here.
