He is Born and raised in London, Jay was a shy, introverted young boy who always strived to make a positive difference. As a child, he was bullied for being overweight and a little nerdy but he never let these experiences affect him. Like any teenager, Jay spent most of those years experimenting with what the world had to offer. Tired of being simply “good,”
Jay’s thrill-seeking ventures saw him get suspended from school on multiple occasions as he tried to find his identity. He lost two of his best friends when he was 16, one in a car accident and the other due to gang violence. These tragic events really made him reflect on what a blessing life is and he felt the need to find deeper purpose and meaning.
He spends a lot of time practicing the Monk routine, Waking up at 4 am, taking cold showers and eating simply was a daily routine.
Jay meditated for 4-8 hours a day and experimented with various no water and food fasts to train the mind. Often practicing meditation in extreme environments (hot and cold), he learned ancient practices of breath and mind control. He studied the timeless philosophies and sciences of the east in great depth, focusing on seeing connections and messages for the modern world.
Half the day was spent on personal growth and the other on help others. This included everything from personal and collective meditation, study, and reflection to teaching and philanthropy. For 3 years, Jay helped build sustainable villages, food programs distributing over 1 million meals per day and coached millennials across the world about consciousness, well-being, and success.
