A professional wordsmith for nearly a decade, Jay has written hundreds of articles published in Newsweek, Washington Post,  Reason, Denver Post, the Foundation for Economic Education, the Cato Institute, and several other newspapers and magazines. Before bringing his passion for the art and science of the written word to the Commonwealth Foundation, Jay also recently served as an editor for the U.S. Department of Energy.

Jay lives in rural Colorado with his unshakable wife, Carrie; his two energetic sons, Hank and Sam; and a menagerie of animals named after food. He spends his free time reading, writing, debating, weightlifting, chasing his children, listening to music (preferably live), and remodeling his century-old Victorian-style home.
