Jay is a long time admin on Solarpunks.net. A website dedicated to the emerging movement in speculative fiction, art, fashion and activism that seeks to answer and embody the question “what does a sustainable civilisation look like, and how can we get there?”.
He has described Solarpunk as a memetic engine. A cultural tool that can power the ‘refuturing’ our collective imagination needs.
He is a founding member of the decentralised creative exchange Guild.is. A fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA), and affiliated with the Institute for Atemporal Studies.
He also concept curates the ‘theory object’ #stacktivism. ‘A term that attempts to give form to a critical conversation & line of enquiry around infrastructure & the relationship we have to it’.
Jay currently hosts the weekly personal podcast Permanently Moved.
A podcast 301 seconds in length. Written, recorded and edited in one hour.
And the ‘gentle youtube webshow’ Come Internet With Me.
Jay worked in the HR tech and Talent Strategy consulting sectors for a decade.
He is now a freelance consultant. Assisting organisations to navigate emerging high growth and complex hybrid environments.
He is available for strategy work across domains with a focus on: Emerging metaverse technologies and trends. Web3/Dweb product development. Building and scaling regenerative business cultures, and executing healthy narrative strategies.
Jay has worked extensively in Blockchain and the Distributed Web since 2015.
He prioritises work that values prefigurative futures, employee agency, and innovative company forms.
Jay sits on several organisation’s advisory groups and coaches several CxO’s 1-2-1.
Jay has been meditating seriously since 2012 and has written a popular chapbook on the subject under a pseudonym. He sometimes thinks it has ruined his life. He is also a wizard.
