At Berklee, Jason intensely studied Film Scoring, Composition, World Music, Musicianship, Music Production, Audio Engineering and Mixing and Mastering.
Shortly after graduation, Jason moved to L.A. and pursued work taking advantage of a one year practical training visa he received from Berklee College of Music. He quickly found several jobs working as a Freelance Composer Assistant for composers such as Phillip Giffin (Boomtown, Murder 101), David Kitay (Mismatch, Bad Santa), Richard Gibbs (Queen of the Damned, Battlestar Gallactica), David Schwartz (Arrested Development, Northern Exposure), Lawrence Shragge (The Snow Queen, The Twilight Zone), Jon Ehrlich (The Guardian, Party of Five) and Joseph Zito (Arranged for Nat King Cole, Judy Garland and Dean Martin). Jason was simultaneously scoring films and TV independently while working as an assistant composer and scored a variety of projects that can be seen in detail on the Film/TV Credits page on this website.
In September of 2004, Jason returned to Toronto, Canada. Shortly after his arrival, he took a hiatus in Granada, Spain where he intensely studied Flamenco Guitar (another passion of Jason's). Shortly after his arrival from Spain, Jason signed a record deal with Somerset Entertainment and wrote/produced and performed a Flamenco album entitled "Siesta" and played all instruments on the CD. Jason later began producing electronic music for various artists and labels and toured and played live shows around the world. Shortly after Jason settled in Toronto and started a personal electronic project called 'Repose', wich is a collective music project with a foundation of chillout electronic percussive textures and ambiences.
In 2007 Jason started a production music licening library called "Soundcape Media Inc." which is a company that licenses a large catalogue of music for use in TV and Film. The catalogue has since grown to over 15,000 tracks of music with over 375 composers signed to the company. For more information visit: www.soundscapemedia.com. Jason is currently dividing his time composing music for TV, Commercials and Films as well as producing select artists.
Jason has managed to keep busy and keep things interesting by pursuing several avenues in the music industry such as Film/TV Music Composition, Music Production, Electronica, World Music, Performing, and Mixing. Jason has a wide variety of skills and talents that keep him entertained and inspired which is key in Jason's eyes; "Diversity for me is the key to inspiration and originality". This is what distinguishes Jason from other Composer/Producers, drawing knowledge, experience, inspiration and passion from different worlds, and bringing them all together to be uniquely applied in every project that Jason takes part in.
