WHO IS JASON?
Jason has never sat still.
He launched his first newspaper with a carbon copier at the age of 7 and staged his first play at 8. By 20 he was host of a kids’ television show. So, it is no surprise he forged himself as a writer in 1993. Fast-tracked to international creative director at 27, Jason has since bounced through the world living in Sydney, Warsaw, Moscow, Berlin, Geneva and Vienna.
Regarded as a pioneer of multi-platform storytelling, in June 2016 Jason stepped away from his role as Worldwide Executive Creative Director at Saatchi & Saatchi where he lead the output for brand giants like Deutsche Telekom, Toyota and Glaxo-Smith Kline. He has been distinguished with various Grand Prix, Gold, Silver and Bronze awards at Cannes Lions, Eurobest, LIA, ADCE, ADC, CCA, ADCI, LIA, Golden Drum, Epica, Clio, and many other shows around the world.
In 2015 alone he won an impressive 9 Cannes Lions for Vangardist Magazine and “The HIV+ Issue”. In 2016 he was further awarded another 10 Lions mostly for his work on Sea Hero Quest- the world’s first mobile game where anyone can help scientists fight dementia. The mobile game has already been downloaded over 2.3 million times and players have revolutionized research by contributing over 7500 years-worth of data.
Amongst his favorite work continues to be Internet hit “Angry Birds Live” and Katy Perry’s “Firework” campaign and music clip, which picked up MTV Video Music Awards coveted “Video Of The Year”.
A “Screenager” to the core, his creativity has now been viewed and shared online over a billion times. He has served on the Cannes Lions jury twice and regularly inspires audiences as a speaker at various industry festivals and events. Today, building on his experience as a commercial artist, Jason wants to continue inventing and curating ideas across a wider spectrum of canvases ranging from books to series to whatever life throws at him.
“I just want to make great stuff happen. And that doesn’t just come from talent, you have to work harder than everyone else.” Jason is pure energy, speaks 7 languages fluently and has a cat named Bauer.
