Jax Jackson is an agender transsexual actor and healing artist in NYC. Jax has very little experience storytelling and has no idea what to put in a bio for this event, because usually bios for actors are long boring lists of credits with no context or interesting points of fact along the way. So Jax is just kinda rambling. If you need an actor, a yoga teacher, a reiki practitioner, a tarot reader, an astrologer, or a crystal consultant, you could check out Jax’s work at or Or like, just talk to Jax or something.
