SAG-Aftra & Actors Equity
Hello and Welcome! Glad you stopped by.
One of the appreciable joys in life is losing yourself in an incredible story. Whether reading an espionage thriller, hearing tales of ship lost at sea or living on-stage in another person's reality, a great story can alter the trajectory of your perspective and even change your life. It was the prospect of this journey, which propelled Jason out of a long-term stint in corporate sales and into his own incredible story.
An Emmy Award winning voiceover talent, stage award winning actor and seasoned TV performer, he began his professional career writing and portraying Tupac Shakur in the scripted & improvisation hybrid show, Inside Private Lives, winner of the Edinburgh & San Francisco Fringe Festivals. His clever and charismatic interpretation of the cultural icon’s imagined Christmas album pitch to Interscope Records served as his creative thesis following a year residency on Second City Hollywood’s Main Stage house ensemble American Standard. His thespian work continued as a cast member of the 4th Annual CBS Diversity Comedy Showcase while co-writing the NBC Short Cuts Festival winner Make It Happen. He continued on to the Sierra Madre Playhouse production of To Kill a Mockingbird followed by Rogue Machine’s world premiere of Kemp Powers acclaimed masterpiece One Night In Miami winning multiple NAACP Theatre and LA Stage Alliance awards. Recent work in The Road Theatre's Red Speedo nabbed him a Stage Scene LA Outstanding Featured Actor in Comedy-Drama nomination. His continued study with Richard Seyd has garnered appearances in 85 television and film projects. In that span, he has been fortunate to work with incredible names in the business including Dwayne Johnson, Danny DeVito, Kevin Dunn, Taye Diggs, Emmanuelle Chriqui and a random brush with the incomparable Morgan Freeman who told him, "You want to know how to become a great actor? Never quit."
Having lived throughout the US and Europe, he is a traveller, coach, dabbling songwriter, spiritual enthusiast, family man, lover of Harley-Davidson and avid collegiate football and track & field fan. Sit with him over a good bourbon and you'll discover his life experiences are far more diverse and surprising than his unassuming demeanor presents.
His message is simple, you can write new chapters to your story if you'll task yourself with three simple daily actions:
