At the age of three, Jason was drawing Mickey Mouse, in the hopes of someday working for Disney. Jason graduated Carnegie Mellon with an illustration degree, which was put to use in NYC at Jim Henson Productions, Marvel Comics, and Disney Consumer Products. At this point, Jason was bit by the animation bug, and moved to Chicago. There, he worked for Startoons on such projects as Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, and Tiny Toons. After gaining some experience, Disney brought Jason to Orlando, giving him the opportunity to draw Mickey Mouse professionally. Jason's credits include The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, Mushu from Mulan, Tarzan, Kuzco from The Emperor's New Groove, Jumba from Lilo and Stitch, and Koda from Brother Bear. Jason also added sculpting to his resume, doing the John Henry maquette for the Disney produced short.
After Disney Animation closed it's doors in Orlando, Jason spent almost two years working as a Senior Key Assistant on a traditionally animated video game. He's now working as a full time freelancer, sculpting and illustrating for such clients as Disney Publishing, Disney Entertainment Design, Busch Gardens, Premise Entertainment, Big Idea, SPCA, and many others. Since finishing work on Disney’s latest 2-D feature- The Princess and the Frog, Jason’s been freelancing as a Disney Storybook Artist on such books as UP, Toy Story 3 and CARS.
