Jason grew up in the small town of Hurley, NY surrounded by cornfields and the mighty Catskill mountains. He spent his early days skipping school to go skiing at Hunter Mountain and dreaming of one day traveling the world filming professional skiers. After acquiring a degree in Communications & Visual Effects, he made the move to Silverton, CO where he worked at Silverton Mountain Ski Area as a videographer, ski patroller, and guide. When MSP rolled through town in 2011 looking for some help, he was more then willing hop in and help out. He enjoys stunts, jokes, jumping out of airplanes, and a nice pair of slacks.
“One of my biggest inspirations growing up was watching Matchstick films, especially Shane McConkey’s segments. Being part of the ‘McConkey’ movie was a huge honor for me and even though I never had the chance to meet Shane, being part of the movie was the next best thing because I felt as if I got to know him through his family, friends, and all the awesome footage he collected over the years. Thanks MSP and Shane for the inspiration!”
