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, he continued to pursue his acting career in Los Angeles. Having children of his own, he was inspired to write children's books. 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.

Jamie and his fiancée, Ashley, now reside in Henderson, Nevada. They met on September 9, 2017, and have been in love ever since. As they manufacture products for exotic pets, Jamie and Ashley enjoy foraging in the desert and mountains to find the safest materials for exotic animals. They also work in the workshop, together. They put a lot of love into making each parrot perch, toy, and product a perfect adventure for every pet. This couple loves going out into the desert, foraging for the most dangerous cactus, The Teddy Bear Cholla.
The Teddy Bear Cholla cactus is also known as the Jumping Cactus! Jamie and Ashley have been poked many times by these dangerous cacti. The 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. This power couple loves an adventure, and they feel good in their hearts, knowing they are making exotic animals happier and healthier.
