Jay started his career as a professional programmer at CompuServe. He's worked at companies such as LCI International, Chemical Abstracts Service, and as an independent consultant. In fifteen years he worked as a quality assurance tester, as a programmer, a lead software architect, and a project manager on projects as diverse as graphical clients, network provisioning systems, chemical structure editors, and more. He brings that wealth of professional experience to teaching Muskingum students about real-world software development and to connect students to organizations in need to help fill real needs for real people. When not programming, Jay's likely to be found gaming, whether it be video games, board games, roleplaying, or LARPing.
