We had the good fortune of connecting with Jay Rocky and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jay, what matters most to you?
My most important principle that is absolutely imperative when working with anyone is making sure they are comfortable. There are a plethora of people in the industry doing it for all of the wrong reasons and I’d like to think outside of the quality of my work this has been essential to helping me grow and be a name that people can trust.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I think what has set me apart is my ability to be make others comfortable, my sheer tenacity to be successful and constantly growing my skill set and the quality of end product I deliver. I first started doing this as a hobby and it wasn’t until someone made fun of me that I decided to make it a profession. When we are faced with a difficult situation in life we can either let it beat us or use it as motivation to refine our character. Looking back I am just so thankful I had the strength to continue on doing something I truly love.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take them to some awesome places outside. Anywhere with water definitely. I would want to also show them some of the different studios I frequent. For food I stick to a pretty strict nutritional regimen but if I did break it I would take them to see some of the local food trucks. I recently just tried Houston’s Pink Box. Their quesadilla tastes as good as it looks.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to thank a few for this. First would have to be my dad for always being a constant supporter of all my aspirations. Second would have to be all of the incredible people that I get the opportunity to work with continually.
