As a young boy he would stand for hours, ogling Super 8 cameras at the local camera shop. The urge to create film blossomed through high school, where he produced several films with friends over summer breaks. Upon leaving school, Jason did a short volunteer stint with a television network, before the harsh reality of the industry hit when the firm downsized, retrenching half of the staff.
Resolving that television wasn't for him at this stage, he completed a Degree in Information Technology at Griffith University, Australia … and also completed several short films with friends he had made in the Film & Television faculty at the same time!
Jason left University and proceeded to work in Information Technology for a few years before realising something was missing – film. With no formal education in filmmaking, Jason formed Yarnmaker, a production company whose sole purpose is to entertain with quality drama.
Jason's first film as a Director was "Unfinished Business" (2006), a moral tale of loss and betrayal when a soldier returns home to resume his life after World War II.
