THE GIST

I've spent the last decade shaping ideas as a qualitative/ethnographic researcher, writer, and editor from academia to advertising.

In advertising, I worked in places like Crispin Porter & Bogusky, Pereira & O'dell (freelance), Victors & Spoils (freelance), Wunderman, and Fact & Fiction as a creative strategist where I led the day-to-day grind on everything from client input brief, qualitative market research, creative briefings, to strategic presentation for both executive clients and agency leaders.

Currently, I’m working closely with students and independent creative writers as a proofreader and writing guide, as well as completing a ridiculous life goal: writing a feature-length screenplay.

NICE THINGS PEOPLE HAVE SAID ABOUT ME

While I was Group Director of Strategy at Crispin, Porter and Bogusky (Boulder), Jason reported to me.

Hire him.

He’s great. He’s a rare hybrid of strategist, researcher, and creative. He’s exactly what modern marketing needs today.

In other words, he’s a rare bird.

In an industry full of pretenders, Jason is not.

He wants to be a part of something big.

He strives for it. I love that. I love that more than anything in a team-mate.

I would do anything to work with him again.

If you’re reading this, you’re doing something very right. You sensed everything I just wrote about.

Call me if you want to hear more gushing and goodness about him.
— Dave Burg, Co-Founder of Shepherd Strategy
Jason was hands down one of my favorite people to work with at Crispin. He helped me learn to look at the big picture rather then getting caught up in the details but more importantly, I was always laughing when we were collaborating. His personality is magnetic and his past life experiences have culminated to make him a creative powerhouse. Saying that I will miss working with him is the understatement of the century. He brought such a bright light to Crispin and wherever he goes next is lucky to have him. I am grateful to have found a lifetime mentor in him and will continue to seek his advice on issues big and small.
— Emma Price, Strategist, CPB
Jason is extremely smart and thoughtful. He dives into projects submitting himself fully, and comes out on the other side with fresh, unique understanding. Collaborating with him is an enjoyable and rewarding experience. From casual convo to brainstorming convo, I truly value Jason’s unique brain and wit. And, don’t get me started on his presentations - the man has an eye for beauty, aesthetic, and story!”
— Maureen Callahan, Insight Research and Brand Strategy, Cactus
I was a former coworker of Jason’s at Wunderman in Seattle. Jason was easily one of the brightest people I’ve worked with, who has a naturally creative mind and the ability to formulate executable strategies. He was always able to view projects from a different perspective that still made sense and added to the work. This is a rare ability that Jason absolutely possesses.
— David Yang, Strategist at WONGDOODY
I had the honor of meeting and working with Jason on a number of projects at Crispin during my time there. Both he and I worked on the Domino’s account and I was lucky enough to have been able to use his knowledge and research to informatively brief creative work that in the end, big or small, proved out to have a targeted, lasting impact. He was regarded at the office as one of the most authentic and well-versed strategic minds. Jason has proven himself to be an astute, accepting, and empathetic individual who’s diverse track record of experience and depth of informational wealth makes him a valuable asset to any.
