Jay was in charge of media management, photo and video direction, and team management of filmers and riders around the world. He provided direction and oversight of all content that was shared by the company, and produced trips throughout the US and Europe. In-house, the team would create product videos and informative "infomercials" about specific boards. Jay handled much of the product photography in studio, as well as on location. These photos were used for the website, advertising and posters.
