Allow me to tell you a little about me:My Grandmother was my best friend and her best friend was Sophie Tucker (“The Last of the Red Hot Mamas”). I literally spent my childhood and early teens in the Moulin Rouge, Coconut Grove, Brown Derby, and in Vegas casino showrooms watching the Rat Pack and other entertainers of the time.Growing up in Hollywood, I began my performance career at age 5, performing in local theatre and TV sitcoms, and I tap danced and performed skits for charity events and fund-raisers.After graduating from San Diego State University, I obtained a lifetime teaching credential from the State of California and taught public school and was a junior and high school counselor for the Los Angeles Unified School District mostly for over a decade teaching subjects including drama, dance, Spanish, and physical education. At Crenshaw High School, I was also in charge of coordinating and producing shows by the 100+ member drill team.   I was the English as a Second Language Coordinator for a portion of the inner city in LA.I continue private performance teaching and coaching, specializing in acting, public speaking, and song performance skills.  I am a public speaker for both public and private schools; sharing with school children topics such as ‘Listen and Be Heard,’ and ‘The Power of Audience Psychology.’  My 2 favorite talks are: “Dynamic Performance Skills for Everyday Living,” and “Peace Begins with Me.”I was a practicing litigation attorney from 1985 through 2014, specializing in fraud, contract disputes, and bankruptcy.In 1991, I formalized my entertainment company, Pepper Jay Productions LLC (“PJP”) Pepper Jay Productions   PJP produces music, film, TV, music videos and internet shows. One of the most favorite things I do is to produce music and my production partner, John Michael Ferrari.PJP also produces and publishes the Actors Podcast Network, consisting of 15+ informative and entertaining shows on three channels: Actors Reporter, Actors Entertainment, and Actors Radio.From 1993 through 2008, I created and hosted the Working Actors Group, offering on camera and cold reading workshops to working actors.I am an Ambassador for the Art 4 Peace Awards organization, am on the Board of the U.S.S. Emmons Association, and am the recipient of the 2016 Diamond Rose Award in Entertainment by the Multicultural Motion Picture Association.I am blessed to be found on both sides of the camera and I enjoy my public speaking engagements.  I appreciate being.Thank you for dropping by,Pepper Jaytagline-representation

Hello Pepper Jay,

It was such a pleasure to meet you during the Film-Com event. I really enjoyed the panel that you were part of at the Hall of Fame. It was very informative. I could’ve listened to you all for another couple of hours, easily. Hearing your stories, definitely inspires me to keep pushing. Thank you for sharing.

I want to thank you for stopping by my booth and for all the advice you gave during the event. I will definitely follow your pages on social media. Thank you for your time and I look forward to keeping in touch.

Take care,
Jeff Swerdan, Director
