About Jamie Skeie
Jamie Skeie was born in Iowa City, Iowa, on May 19, 1980. After graduating high school, Jamie moved to New York City and became a SAG-AFTRA actor. He lived in New York City for five years while working in film, TV, commercials, theatre, and modeling. On September 11, 2001, Jamie was a 9/11 first responder at ground zero at the World Trade Center. His heart will always go out to the families of the victims of this terrible tragedy. To help cope, Jamie got an African Grey Congo parrot, whom he named after the constellation, Orion's Belt. Jamie soon invented a product called The Adventure Pack Bird Carrier™. This product benefits parrots and their owners by allowing them to safely travel with their parrot. As the business grew, Jamie moved to Los Angeles to continue developing and distributing pet products. Later, he continued to pursue his acting career in Los Angeles. Having children of his own, he was inspired to write children's books. Jamie published his first children's book, Orion the Star: The Pink Dolphin, in 2019. This book is the first in the series called Orion the Star. This series features an African Grey superstar parrot, who flies from the stars to save all creatures in distress. Two faithful sidekicks, dogs named Canis Major and Canis Minor, follow along to assist Orion in the rescues. The second book in the series is called The Purple Purse Merman. Jamie and Orion now reside in the Las Vegas area, where he continues to write and publish books.
