Though born in Mississippi, USA, his parents' careers — Air Force Colonel and travel industry professional — relocated Jason to various cities and countries throughout his childhood. 

His appreciation of cinema was almost accidental. On Saturdays, his father would nap at the movie theater while Jason's eyes gazed at the screen or his mother would rent DVDs every Friday to relax. Despite his family having no artistic connection, Jason's interest in visual art led him to become an alumni from New York University (NYU) '09 for Film/TV Production and to minor in Sociology. 

Along this path, Jason studied the works of filmmakers like Charlie Kaufman, Terrence Malick, Andrei Tarkovsky and Krzysztof Kieslowski, as well as novelists like William Faulkner, who used their craft to explore questions and subjects of great importance — such as psychology, culture, politics and spirituality. 

This career choice has led Jason to many great opportunities as a director, cameraman and editor. His work taken him to Cannes and Toronto Film Festivals to interview prominent filmmakers and actors for BBC World to documenting the 2014 Ukrainian Revolution to traveling the U.S. to capture Marcel Duchamp's remaining artworks. He has shot and edited interviews with numerous U.S. Senators, U.S. presidential candidates, and even some rather notorious historical figures. 

Jason is currently based out of Washington, D.C., and Kyiv, Ukraine.
