"Jason is a talented and creative director/producer whose work in unfailingly innovative and who can
deal with any conditions thrown at him with patience, persistence and the drive
to get the project done."
-- Tracy Rosenberg, Executive Director at Media Alliance, San Francisco, CA

"He has proved to be an adaptable and effective teacher and lecturer,

in media and non-media areas. We have frequently communicated
regarding his involvement in University level teaching programs in Asia,
where he has been active for a number of years. His students have come
from extremely diverse backgrounds, and therefore, his ability to work with
such a wide range of learners should also be duly noted"
-- Richard Goldstein, Educator, Oakland School District

Jason is wonderfully and prodigiously creative across

filmmaking, scriptwriting, song writing, musical composition, and graphic
arts. He is highly motivated and intellectually and academically adept. I
have no doubt that he would succeed at master’s level study in any
disciplinary area...I believe he
would thrive and add huge value to class discussions and projects with fellow
students and faculty
-- Hilary Canavan, Health Systems Coordinator, University of Pennsylvania

I had the pleasure of working with Jason while developing the PythonMailer project together. As the
core developer of the project, I was impressed by his ability to transfer project management skills
effectively from his experience as a media and video-film producer to the area of web application
development...his vision regarding UX and UI was clear, creative, and well-conceived
-- Selcuk Ayguney, Python Developer

I can therefore confirm that Jason has experience in shooting, editing and producing documentary
media (for a mass audience); in producing audiobooks and podcasts (also mass media); in teaching
(training and education); in producing popular music (both audio and video) for a mass audience; and
in organizing and curating larger-scale cultural events
