About Jay

Image of Jay Stephen Gilmore taken late 2017

I am Canadian, father, husband, feminist, wine-lover, tea-lover. Really, I am far more than I can list on this page. I am driven by curiosity to learn and grow.

I am interested in a wide variety of subjects and areas including—but hardly limited to: building communities, product development, user experience, marketing, content, design creativity and learning. The common theme is people and helping people do and find the things they need.

I am currently spinning plates and helping people at MODX, the creator and producer of the open source Content Management System.

I formerly operated a small web development and marketing firm delivering solutions and strategies to owner managed business. I've worked as and taught location sound recording for film and television. I have worked in offices and in retail. One summer, over 20 years ago, I even worked on a crew that cut down trees around power lines.

As we all are, I am more than the brief paragraphs above. I dare you to learn more. In fact, why don't we have a conversation?
