When does he do these things?
It's mostly his day job. Sometimes he moonlights. Sometimes it feels as if he's doing it every waking second.
Because of the magic of the internet he can do this work from nearly anywhere. Though if you'd ask him I'm sure he'd say he'd prefer to do most of his work in a cabana near a beach somewhere in sunny Costa Rica.
He uses magical languages like html and
css. Things like bootstrap, foundation, jquery, and angular.js. He likes to follow web standards and always, always looks to inject some creativity into any project.
Jason's passion lies in creativity, and being able to work at the intersection of creativity and technology allows him to explore novel approaches and balance them with design paradigms that are tried and true to create truly unique experiences and add passion to your digital projects.
