Hello there! I’m Jay. I’m co-founder and CEO at Figments, an esports entertainment startup backed by Y Combinator.
Before that, I co-founded Martov Company, where I was Game Director on one of the first virtual reality adventure games: the puzzle-adventure epic, Chiaro and the Elixir of Life.
I’ve also created DeucesCracked, a world leading poker training platform; Bet Raise Fold, a feature length poker documentary; The Micros, an animated comedy series; and Two Months Two Million; a reality television show.
In my 20s, I was a top ten online poker player in the world. I regularly competed against the toughest players at high stakes no limit holdem, created more than 100 training videos, and coached players of all skill levels in tactics and strategy.
I graduated Boston University’s Film and Television program in 2006. This is Aesop, my dog.
