Jason’s work is highly regarded for its performance driven storytelling, offbeat approach and impeccable execution. His first short, ‘A Teachable Moment’, premiered at The Tribeca Film Festival and the second, ‘Clown Face’, was released as a Vimeo Staff Pick and Short of the Week. Alongside his directing talents, Jason is a skilled screenwriter who has written for Netflix and has a feature film in development.
His comedic style is grounded in dry authenticity, wonderfully balancing the offbeat with the everyday to create seamless stories executed with a signature wink. As seen in his reel, Jason’s work is characterized by a super cinematic look, and an enormous commitment to tone and character development… at its least encumbered, skewing towards deliciously dark comedy.
As the son of a cinematographer, Jason spent a large part of his childhood visiting film sets. He got his professional start working in Canadian television writing rooms and was a recipient of the Irving Avrich Fund for emerging talent at the Toronto International Film Festival.
