Jamie’s great grandfather on his mother’s side is the infamous L. Ron Hubbard, sci fi author and the creator of the cult of Scientology, who passed down his red hair and knack for inspiring mass insanity. An outspoken critic for years has lead to church harassment and a stalking campaign. His ensuing live NPR performance entitled “The God and the Man” was a viral hit, garnering national press from the Village Voice and the Washington Post and was awarded Snap Judgment’s “Performance of the Year.” His battles with the cult have been documented with interviews by Inside Edition, CBS, BBC and NBC. He was the host of the first ever anti Scientology summit in Clearwater, Florida and was a keynote speaker at the first international conference in Dublin, Ireland. He’s currently working on a larger project about the legacy his family left behind.
