Artist/Engineer/Musician Jay Mankita has worked with kids and families for over 30 years. His workshops are experiential and inspiring. Jay has a strong passion for engineering and making things move. He loves reliability and precision, but seems to learn best from his many accidents and mistakes, because he loves trying new things he's not that good at...yet! When he’s not engineering, Jay is an award winning and masterful songwriter, guitarist, humorist, and performing artist – a seasoned veteran of the kid’s circuit as well as the adult-americana folk scene. Jay says, “Do It Yourself doesn’t have to mean Do It By Yourself” So let's work together!
