Jason has been performing since he was in middle school. His love for acting and directing theatre led him to NYC in 2001, where his dreams were dashed by real world monetary obligations.

That was in 2005, Jason has been hooked on improv ever since. Jason was a founding member of Anti-Cooperation League. In 2012, Jason moved to San Diego where he was a founding member of Finest City Improv. He coached numerous teams at FCI including their house team, World According to.  And now he’s back in Sacramento with his amazing wife and daughter CJ.
