In 2006, Jamie graduated from Phillips Hairstyling Academy in Syracuse, New York. He started his first job in a small salon outside of Syracuse, where he studied under a truly gifted young barber and a staff of experienced hairstylists who taught him the skills he would take with him throughout his decade long career. In 2008 he moved to Baltimore and landed a job in Charm City at Tenpachi in Fells Point. It was there where he became familiar with the Paul Mitchell brand, advancing his knowledge in professional products and color techniques, and where he and Laura met.
Jamie's attention to detail creates classic and precision haircuts for both his many male and female clients. One of the main things he continuously hears from his clients is how focused he seems to be, but that is only because he is a bit of a perfectionist, especially when it comes to the clients in his chair.

"My best friend and I were frustrated that no stylist could clearly see or carry out our teenage hair visions... so we did each other's hair. We would set up shop in the bathroom of the "party house" and people would come find us. We kept a makeshift kit of the essentials: clippers, combs, scissors, some Sally's bleach and developer, and a few shades of manic panic. We colored hair purple, trimmed mowhawks, and cut the symmetry right outta your hair. We used to joke with each other that if all else failed, we could always go to cosmetology school. After a little bit of college and whole lot of traveling, that's exactly what I did"
