Jason was bitten by the animation bug at a very young age, like most, watching cartoons on countless Saturday mornings with cereal bowl in hand. Born and raised in Toronto, Canada. He studied 2D animation and CG post grad at Sheridan College (1989-95). His animation career started in 1995 at Walt Disney Animations Studios as an animation trainee. His first task at Disney was animating CG crowds on "Hunchback Of Notre Dame". Working with a mentor, Jason continued to grow and master his skills on "Dinosaur", "102 Dalmatians", "Reign Of Fire" and "Kangaroo Jack". After a brief stint at Rhythm & Hues working on "Garfield" and "Scooby 2", he was back at Disney as a Lead Animator of "Gaston" on "Meet The Robinsons" and Sr. Animator on "Bolt" and "Tangled". During Bolt, Jason became a mentor for the new trainees. He is currently working at Dreamworks Animation SKG. His credits include "Kung Fu Panda 2", "Puss And Boots", "Rise Of The Guardians", "The Croods" and "Peabody And Sherman". When not geeking out on "all things animation", Jason can be found blazing down Mammoth Mountain with his hair on fire....or more recently, the bunny slopes with his wife, Joan and 6-year old daughter, Sophia.
