His 20 years of experience across multiple industries propelled him to the forefront of his chosen ventures time and time again. Beginning with the design and apparel business, Jay created a successful brand with multiple retail locations and a strong wholesale presence in Australia’s Gold Coast. When it was acquired in 2007, he joined a renown Sydney-based fashion brand as their international business manager. In 2010, Jay took his apparel expertise to the shores of Southern California where he created a fashion collective which a includes a women’s contemporary fashion brand and a firm specializing in immersing Australian brands into the US marketplace through PR, marketing, and distribution. With his Australian roots firmly grounded in U.S. soil, he saw an opportunity to create a gourmet coffee and organic food experience reminiscent of those from his hometown on the Gold Coast. In 2015, he opened Outpost Kitchen to rave reviews in Southern California. Jay calls Newport Beach his home with his wife, Elizabeth, and their son, Lennox Lazer.
