Jay started writing software in fifth grade with a HyperCard adventure game about a one-eyed pirate cat. After a quick break of a couple of decades, he decided to pursue coding professionally. He completed an immersive software development course at General Assembly in Seattle.
In the intervening years, he got a B.A. in Political Science from Knox College and a law degree from Rutgers. He worked as a journalist and blogger for nearly a decade, writing for Gawker, New York Magazine, the Daily Dot and others.
So far (his words), Jay thinks being a developer is more fun. He enjoys finding creative solutions to client problems, loves picking up new tools and tricks, and finds writing tests strangely soothing.
When he’s not writing code, Jay loves reading, drinking too much coffee, and watching the Seahawks. He lives with his Boston Terrier, cat, and wife, which sounds pretty ideal to us.
