Jason was born in 1988 and, since birth, has always been fully ensconced within the world of music, arts and entertainment.
Since the age of 8, Jason became familiarized within the music industry where his mother, Audrey, would introduce him to the ins and out, behind the scenes and backstage disciplines required to run a recording studio and production company.
However, in 2015, Jason's flame was ignited when he was asked to work as a PA for his cousin, the amazing American actress, Nicole Beharie on "Sleepy Hollow" for Fox TV. Within this environment, Jason was able to concisely learn, take in and understand all the facets that were required to create such an incredible series and develop an appreciation for the art of filmmaking and the industry as a whole.
The fate was sealed and Jason returned to the UK with a clear mind of his career path and the ultimate dream to aspire to become a Director of Photography.
His fascination further blossomed as he became more enthralled and excited with the logistics from "behind" the lens, the intricacies of lighting, staging and developing on-screen narratives through the art of visual storytelling, as mentored and encouraged by Brian, his step-father's, and own 30 year journey within the film industry.
