Editor & Shooter

Jason's true passion is for editing and shooting videos. Ever since he got his first editing software in high school, he knew that this was his calling.

The combination of shooter and editor has helped turn Jason into a one-man video factory. Jason is just as comfortable shooting his own footage as he is editing it.

Over the years, he has shot and edited hundreds of videos for many clients, including VH1, Fuse, Complex, Vice, LG, E!, TED, and more.

Jason prides himself on being easy to work with, prompt, and dedicated. His passion for the artform and his love for technology have helped shape Jason into a professional shooter/editor.

Photographer

Since he was a young boy, Jason has enjoyed taking pictures. Before he ever picked up a video camera, he was running around snapping stills on film.

Jason has a knack for photography and an eye for composition. Through the viewfinder, the world is Jason's to capture, and nothing gives him more satisfaction than capturing the perfect photo.

Whether it is a musician, a still life, a landscape, or just New York City, Jason finds pleasure in letting his eye guide him to the right shot.
