Jay was born into a wealthy family, and attended Naples Christian Academy (NCH) during grade school. He then attended Gilmour Academy, and after matriculating went to the University of San Diego where he studied business and psychology.

After graduating, Jay then pursued several careers as well as business ventures. In 1992, he invested in adult films directed by Michael Ninn. He also wrote and directed several films under the names Justin Sterling, Justin Fine, and Michael Santangelo. Most of his films were in the style of Ninn and were released from 1995 to 1999. In 2000, he co-founded Club Jenna which started off as an internet pornography company. The site then transitioned to a multimedia adult entertainment business. His net worth was starting to increase significantly at this point. They were then acquired by Playboy Enterprises, and Grdina gave a personal service agreement along with Jenna Jameson.

He would go on to direct and write several Club Jenna films including “Krystal Method”, “The Masseuse”, and “Briana Loves Jenna”. He also acted in several films as he was the only man who could have intercourse with Jameson on screen.
