Jay was the first person I met at freshman orientation in Oxford. We immediately connected and have stayed friends ever since. He has always inspired me with the ability to thrive in the corporate world while having credibility in the venture space. Over the past 20 years, he was a Senior Vice President at Bank of America and also an Angel Investor. But in 2017, he was recruited to be the CMO of a booming pet toy business Bark. Not a Miami conversation goes by without Jay reminiscing about bringing Jay Leno to campus (in the early 90's) when he was leading Concert Board as a student.
