After graduating high school in 1998, Jamie moved to New York City and became a SAG-AFTRA Actor. He lived in New York City for five years while working in Film, TV, Commercials, Theatre, and Modeling. On September 11, 2001, Jamie was one of the first responders at Ground Zero at the World Trade Center. His heart will always go out to the families of the victims of the terrible tragedy. To help cope, Jamie got an African Grey parrot, whom he named after the constellation, Orion's Belt. Jamie soon invented The Adventure Pack Pet Carrier™. This product benefits parrots and their owners by allowing them to safely travel with their birds.
As the business grew, Jamie moved to Los Angeles to continue developing and distributing exotic pet products. Later, Jamie continued to pursue his acting career in Los Angeles when he started starring in adult films. He makes content in his free time and writes books. Jamie was inspired to write children's books for his children and to help people. Jamie published his first children's book, Orion the Star: The Pink Dolphin, in 2019. The book series features an African Grey superstar parrot, Orion the Star, who flies from the stars to save all creatures in distress. Two faithful sidekicks, dogs named Canis Major and Canis Minor, follow along to assist Orion the Star in the rescues. The third book in the series is called Orion the Star: The Purple Purse Merman. His books help people who are going through difficult times. Jamie has been continuing to write books and creating new YouTube vids for Our Awesome Adventures.
Teddy Bear Cholla cactus is like a pile of tennis balls with thousands of sharp needles sticking out of them. The cactus is like magnetic tennis balls that really do jump at you. Our awesome adventures are true expeditions. There are venomous snakes, Gila monsters, lizards, and scorpions in some areas where they gather materials. The Skeie family loves an adventure, and they feel good in their hearts, knowing they are making exotic animals happier and healthier.
