Dana Jae is currently serving as the Department Chair in the Broadcast Electronic Media Arts department at City College of San Francisco while also teaching several audio courses. She has been among the BEMA faculty since 2001 teaching and writing audio curriculum for the department. Dana has been a member of AES for two decades and served as an AESSF Member-At-Large for five years.

For over thirty years she worked in sound services around the Bay Area in myriad ways: via her sound company, dcj Productions — providing live sound, recording services, and film sound (both production and post) to the not-for-profit sector (and sometimes for-profit folks too). She was one of the house sound engineers for SF nightclub Bottom Of The Hill (1991-2012) and toured the U.S. and Europe several times as FOH sound mixer for the band, Medicine (on American Recordings) in the early-mid 1990s. Dana worked as an assistant purchasing agent for Leo's Audio (in the late 80's), then on to purchasing for Audio Images (in the early 1990s), The Media Room, and Cutting Edge Audio & Video Group (mid-late 1990s). She presided over and was partner in a record label and commercial recording studio—APG Records/APG Studios from 1999 -- 2004 that transformed into Potrero Post. In 2007, she founded Films on 45 — a creative visual media production company assembled to build upon her adventures in screenwriting.
