A little more about Jason...

After 8 years in New York, Jason made the leap to Hollywood. It was this move that helped evolve Jason’s professional career. Soon after arriving in Hollywood, Jason began directing behind-the-scenes music videos for artists like CHRISTINA MILIAN, BLU CANTRELL and KELLY PRICE. His work continued to flourish ultimately securing the role of director on A LIFE’S WORK, starring Linda Bailey Walsh (CBS’ THAT’S LIFE.)

After A LIFE’S WORK, Jason began focusing on writing and quickly landed a staff writer position on Here! TV’s DANTE’S COVE. Shortly after, he was hired to write BLACK RAIN, a Regent Releasing feature film. With the success of BLACK RAIN, Jason was sought out by independent producer Elana Pianko to write THE PEARL, a true story account of an Eastern European Jewish family surviving New York during the Great Depression.
