Meet Jay

Member— The International Cinematographers Guild - I.A.T.S.E. Local 600  

2014 Emmy Award Winner - Director of Photography — ABC: Disney's Magical Christmas Celebration


 Over the past 20 years, Jay has honed his craft in the conception and execution of lighting across a diverse range of styles, from beauty lighting or a dramatic narrative look, to stylized lighting of stage sets and venues for music, game shows, and comedy specials. This is orchestrated in tandem with his mastery in the technical and aesthetic use of the camera, in both single camera and multi-cam cinema style, to tell a story and convey a mood, or cover the action.


Jay has two rescue dogs named Charles and Blanche
