On top of being a successful novelist, he is also a talented guitarist, and will soon release his first album with his band, Pistols 40 Paces. His day job places him in the basement of the Supreme Court each day, which has given him the ability to understand Legalese very well.

Education

New York University

Philosophical study at NYU is heavily based in the Anglo-American tradition. Jay F excelled in the study of logic, ethics and the philosophy of language. He found metaphysics somewhat tedious.
As NYU feels that every culture is important, there are numerous classes for students of history, and individuals are encouraged to broaden their horizons. Instead of focusing upon one area of history, Jay F studied a large variety of civilizations. His thesis examined the relations between America and Siberia in the late 1800s.
