About Jay

After a twenty-year career as a professional actor, Jay Amari moved to New York in 1988 to accept the Woolrich Scholarship at Columbia University. He further accepted a Fellowship at Columbia University's School of the Arts and was awarded a Master's Degree in Fine Arts in 1995.

His first appearance onscreen was as a Cockroach in a pesticide commercial. Since that time Amari has appeared in numerous union and non-union independent films, and TV.

His two scripts, "The Greatest" and "Cloudy All Day" were finalists at Actors Theatre of Louisville National 10-Minute Play Contest in 1992 and 1993.

Amari resides in New York and has written a collection of screenplays about post-modern urban lifestyle that he is seeking funding to produce.

Born on Thanksgiving Day, Jay Amari shares the same birthday as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and William F. Buckley, Jr.

Unique traits: Disappointed that my expensive education has amounted to a steaming pile of insignificance.
