Ranger ‘Jay’ as he is affectionately known, started work at Kingfisher Bay Resort in December 2007.
Initially working in the Food & Beverage department, he started training with the Ranger’s department in 2008 and has been a valued member of the team ever since. Working on and off with the resort over the years, Jay now works at one of the local High Schools and joins the ranger’s team throughout school holidays.
A direct descendant of the Butchulla People of K'gari, Jay is an expert in bush tucker and bush medicine survival. Some of this knowledge he learnt from the elders within his family, but most was through his own personal research, where he gained an appreciation for culturalism and science.
He has a certificate in TV Pro Global and extensive acting training, which he wishes to combine in the hope to one day have is own TV show, based on the culture and science of plants. Jay is full of passion, always wears a big, broad smile and ensures everyone is enjoying themselves while on his ancestral homeland.
Jay loves cultural research, hiking, 4WDing, board games, star gazing, movies and night walks.
