Photography piqued Jason's interest in 2009 during a photo session for the marketing department in which he worked. Soon, he was borrowing the company camera to experiment with long night exposures and street photography. It remained an occasional hobby until a move to Austin spurred him to take his creative side more seriously. Since then, Jason has energetically sought to grow as a photographer, while also working to combine the camera with his other passion, cycling, as often as possible.
