Jamie grew up in Washington State and studied theater at New York University. He started out in comedy, writing and performing at venues like the UCB Theater, the Montreal Sketch Comedy Festival, and the Second City Theater. After getting his Masters in Writing and Producing for Television at Loyola Marymount University, Jamie interned in the SONS OF ANARCHY writers’ room, and assisted producers on THE DIVIDE for AMC Studios, before landing a job on MARVEL’S JESSICA JONES. There, he received two freelance script assignments and a promotion to Staff Writer in the first season, later returning for seasons two and three. He shares a credit on the season one finale, “Smile,” with Scott Reynolds and Melissa Rosenberg, which earned the show a Hugo Award.
Between seasons, Jamie wrote the horror feature LIVESTREAM for Legendary Digital, and worked on a major Marvel Video Game (yet to be announced). His reality-show parody written entirely in verse, THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF SHAKESPEARE, was an official selection in the Port Townsend Film Festival. His pilot script CASTLE ROCK, adapted from his own live musical, placed first in the 2015 Slamdance Teleplay Competition. He is repped by CAA, Circle of Confusion, and Hirsch Wallerstein Hayum Matlof + Fishman. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and son.
