Pepper Jay. I like to say that I’m the most
beautiful hard-working retired middle-aged speaker, panelist, author,
producer, actress (SAG-AFTRA), Bubby, rancher, woman with salt and
pepper braids that you’ve ever met in your entire life who looks forward
to working with you.
Allow me to tell you a little about myself. I
was born in 1949 and, sometimes, I believe I have lived several
lifetimes. 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
Entertainment has always been part of my life.
fter graduating from San Diego State
University, I obtained a lifetime teaching credential from the State of
California and for a decade enjoyed teaching for LA Unified public
schools and counseling students and coordinating and producing shows by
the 100+ member drill team.
The highlight was interacting with the
students and traveling on a regular basis to meet and speak to students
in 3 school districts about the power of money.
After graduating with a juris doctorate from
the University of San Diego School of Law, I was fortunate to be a
successful practicing litigation attorney for 32 years..
In 1991, I formalized my entertainment
company, Pepper Jay Productions LLC (“PJP”) PJP produces music, film,
TV, music videos and internet shows. .PJP also produced and published
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 scene study, on-camera and
auditioning techniques, including cold reading workshops, to working
Today, I continue with a few private
performance coaching clients. I also enjoy leading performance workshops
for lawyers, teachers, business people, actors, singers, public
speakers, etc. Even an 8th grader afraid to give a book
report in front of his class can find relief in learning performance
skills. The key is “audience psychology!”
Five of my favorite things at age 68: 1.

Multicultural Motion Picture Association, the Braveheart Lifetime
Achievement Award by Art 5 Peace, and commended by the City of Los
Angles and City of Beverly Hills, California.
