About Jay

Jay is a junior researcher and technical assistant who joined One Tribe TV in November 2017. Born and bred in the West Country, before coming to One Tribe he worked as a runner and sound operator for the BBC in Bristol, on productions such as Countryfile Diaries, BBC’s Chelsea Flower Show and other RHS shows. He also changed channels to work to join the casting team on none other than Channel Four’s The Great British Bake Off.

Before working in television, Jay created corporate videos for small businesses and charities over 2 years which has given him plenty of camera operating and editing experience. He studied at the BFI documentary film-making academy.

In his spare time Jay builds and restores motor cycles, has two cats and a small dog called Pip, who he takes walking in the countryside near Chew Magna.  Other interests include climate change and the future of alternative energy, which inspired him to write and produce a PSA on “carbon pricing” called “Your Choice” which won 2 awards from the United Nations at COP22.
