Hi! My name is Jay B. Walker A.K.A. Zyyro. I am an artist, activist and director in film and tv who left the security of working in TV in NYC to keep my sister's ATL based non-profit alive. .A passion for change fuels my life. It fueled my sister's life too. She was a Doctor, Classical Singer and a Filmaker Educated at Howard University. A true Renaissance woman.
From Medicine to Music to Movies.....she did it all and started a non-profit in ATL to create excitement about learning through teaching film production.She supported it out of her pocket from 1997 til passing away in April 2008. I am attemptinng to keep her dream alive and continue making "CHANGE" a reality. I need your help though.
