About Jay

I am an independent audio producer and documentarian on a mission to help people connect with themselves, each other, and the world.

As a recent graduate of the Salt Institute with a background in nonfiction book editing, I have a trained editorial eye and ear. My biggest strength is in developmental editing, which focuses on the heart of the story, and building a narrative structure to support it. I also love an organized Pro Tools session, and am skilled in tape editing, tracking, and mixing. 

I use she/they pronouns.
