Did you know?
• Jason calls himself a right-brained person doing a left-brained job. He plays guitar, writes music, was into the emo/punk scene growing up and even played in a rock band for a while.
• His hobbies are vast and varied, from baking with his three daughters and crafting cocktails to arboriculture and architecture.
• Best advice he’s ever received: Don’t go broke saving money. It doesn’t matter how good an individual deal (or anything you want in life) looks on paper – if it doesn’t work in the big picture, it isn’t worth it.
