For many years, Jay served as vice-president of Publishing at PraiseGathering Music Group composing and arranging some of Christian music's top-selling choral anthems. In addition he was the Editor of the Medallion Music catalog for the Lorenz Corporation. Jay is one of the leading arrangers, orchestrators and producers in the choral print industry.

All of this has created a body of work that comprises more than four hundred octavos and over fifty best-selling choral musicals. He has also published works with the Shawnee Press School Market, Gaither Music Company, Word Music, Brentwood Music, Lillenas, Lifeway Worship and Integrity Worship. As a keyboard artist and arranger, Jay has many books & CD’s in print.

Most recently, Jay has taken the position of Artist in Residence at Crossings Community Church in Oklahoma City. You’ll find him at the piano most Sunday’s - he loves the opportunity to be a part of a vibrant music department in such a thriving church.

Born and raised in Florida, the Gulf coast with its ocean waves and salt breezes is the place he likes best to recharge, the place that feels most like home. When he's not working, you might find him there with his family, reading a good book, drinking sweet tea with a twist of lime. Throw in some good barbeque, a slice of key lime pie or carrot cake and that's pretty much all he needs. And that too is worship.

Jay and Amy live in Edmond, Oklahoma. They are the parents of two children, Thatcher, who lives and works in the Indianapolis area, and Londyn, a masters student at the University of Oklahoma.
