ABOUT JASON

I'm currently a freelance editor and filmmaker for the award-winning independent global studio, Gunpowder & Sky.  In this role I was the lead editor on all of Kevin Durant's social media content and a full season of JaVale McGee's Parking Lot Chronicles.  I also edited trailers and promos for Gunpowder's film acquisitions and launched an interview series for their sci-fi channel DUST.   

I also work with Friends at Work, a social impact & entertainment company and have edited several pieces that include John Legend's Unlocked Futures campaign to combat our nation's excessive incarceration problem and other doc-style edits to promote education in underserved communities and Native Americans in Philanthropy.

My background is in filmmaking, graduating from NYU with a BFA in Film/TV and winning several awards for my narrative directorial efforts including NYU's prestigious Wasserman Award and a grand prize winner for Stella Artois' Triggerstreet filmmaker award. 

As I broadened my horizons in NYC, I took my post-production experience into advertising and joined JWT as an editor.  This allowed me to learn about the commercial world, working with brands, and executing content for both web and TV.   I was able to grow in these roles, expanding my experience into the roles of producing and post-producing.  Over the years, I've created content for a plethora of clients including AMEX, Comcast, Smirnoff, Bloomberg, Mazda, McDonald's, Chase, Motorola, Delta, Diageo, Microsoft, Rolex, Samsung, Wells Fargo, Macy's and TIAA-CREF.

I pride myself on creating and executing quality pieces of content for my clients whether they be ads, TV, film, or web-based content.  I've worked with budgets big and small and have a passion for storytelling and can find the unique qualities in any project.  My wealth of experience in film & advertising includes working for several respected companies including: Scott Rudin Productions, IFC, MILK, Paramount, JWT, Digitas, VICE, MTV, Atom Factory, and Tommy Wiseau.
