Jason specializes in the development of memorable brands and products built through a combination of strategic thinking, enriched experiences and investment in each other. With a history of creative work for top US and global companies including Google, Facebook, YouTube, Patagonia, Instagram, Pinterest, Lyft, Affirm and Stanford, Jason brings a diverse array of skills and sensibilities to every project. Approaching projects through a wide-eyed creative lens born from natural interests in media, film, art, culture, design and digital experience, his work is sharpened through strategic clarity, function, usability, and strong inclination toward shared understanding. He spent his early career in brand development on the east coast before joining the acclaimed design team at Obama for America during the 2012 election campaign. He has since moved to San Francisco and is currently overseeing the fantastic creative team at Upperquad.
