This established a still unmatched reputation for throwing the "Biggest and Best" events in the most outrageous places that established a new norm for over the top theatrics, off the charts attendance and celebrity attachment and media coverage. Other companies he founded and sold include: GameTrailers.com - sold to MTVN, Gametiger.com – sold to IGN, Xgrinds - Sold to Fritolay and Exsell - technology sold to Cisco. He was the youngest VP at realtor.com whose digital/web strategies made them the #1 real estate destination on the Internet. He is currently a major shareholder in Sharkreach, the highly respected influencer marketing company he co-founded and was the impetus behind the breakout movie of 2015, “Straight Outta Compton.” Jamie started his career as a Club DJ in Toronto and NY and quickly became known for his crazy antics and over the top personality. He worked with Ryan Seacrest at Star98.7, Skotty Boy, and Richard Blade at KROQ and Don Burns and Chris Sheppard at CFNY102.1. After 7 years he transitioned to television and quickly became a highly sought-after producer and development consultant working on major brand embedded programming and vignettes for MTV, VH1, Extra!, G4, Telepictures, UPN, TrueTV, SpikeTV, and NBC. His production company/Agency Relentless Media is still to date the only agency ever authorized to directly sell into long-form programming on MTV. His first episode of “making the game” held the record for the most watched half-hour show on the network for nearly 5 years. During its ten years run Relentless Media marketed over 30 tier one Game Titles, established the "Crescendo Campaign" for Video Games, a 2year whisper to a scream campaign that is now the standard for Video Game Marketing. His team marketed over 28 Billion dollars in domestic sales of Games, Tech products, peripherals, and accessories before disbanding in 2010. When not busy working his business, he volunteers his time coaching and supporting young entrepreneurs via StartUpGrind. He is also regularly called upon to speak at National Investment Bankers Association (NIBA) conferences. He is a mentor, a teacher, and a volunteer and regularly donates to the fallen Fire Fighters and fallen Policeman funds, PETA and Habitat for Humanity, as well as Spotted Dog Ranch a non-profit horse rescue he founded in 2013
