Straight out of film school, Jason was pretty desperate for work and eventually landed a job on a world traveling cruise ship. After sailing the seven seas for three years, he came back to the states with lot’s of stories to tell. After telling his stories over and over again at various bars, porches, campfires, parties, brunches, family gatherings, and to random people on the bus he realized that it might be fun to tell those stories on stage. This began his obsession with live storytelling! Jason founded the Affable Gentlemen Storytelling Show in Portland in 2012. He’s been a producer for various shows on MTV and VH-1 and has worked for eight years in stop motion movies. He recently co-produced and co-hosted The New Vaudeville at The Clinton Street Theater.
