Sheltered and without access to media, TV, radio, or the cinema until leaving the commune where he grew up, two of Jay’s passions are story-telling and making movies. His recently launched film production company, Aliquot Films, is credited with producing three feature films with premieres at prestigious festivals such as Cannes and Tribeca.

Jay has also provided funding to many philanthropic organizations including: The Gentlemen’s Fund, ONE, The Name Campaign in Africa, The Children’s Institute for Autism, and The National Breast Cancer Foundation.

In his spare time Jay enjoys mountain biking, playing hockey, cooking, gardening, photography, and socializing with his friends and family.

Jay is based in New York city where he makes his home.
