Since, he’s appeared in the MIFF funded (and opening night) film THE DEATH AND LIFE OF OTTO BLOOM, starring Xavier Samuel (of TWILIGHT fame) and produced by Oscar winner Melanie Coombs.

Between his gigs and auditions, Jason has coached actors of all ages, teaching a practical approach to learning scenes and helps to provide them with the necessary tools (the business side to acting) to become working actors.

Jason is also currently developing a feature film screenplay with an AFI award winning producer/director.

Away from the industry, Jason enjoys eating, watching James Bond films, and keeping up to date with foreign affairs.
