Jay is our team artist. As a published illustrator with a superior eye for detail and 10 years of technical experience, he brings a unique blend of skills to our team. If he isn't tweaking pixels to perfection for that optimal user experience, Jay spends his time drawing illustrations, mountain biking, and promoting urban farming. Cohesion, simplicity and usability for site visitors are a top priority for him but the focus on helping promote social good at TechScouts is what really makes the work meaningful.
