He has worked professionally as a Technical Director, Scenic Painter, Set designer, Makeup Designer, and Artistic Director. Since 1997, he has been designing and building shows in NewEngland and recently has ventured to Florida as well. His philosophy of design is taken from his start as an illustrator. He designs his sets and makeup using the stage or the face as a canvas. Currently he teaches Visual and Theatre Arts at the Beacon Charter High School for the Arts and teaches courses in the RISD continuing Education department including makeup and steampunk fabrication.

Jason will be bringing an exclusive scenic design workshop to the families and friends of AWIP over February vacation!

We hope to see you there!

Oh – and p.s. this Thursday, Feb 7, we will be at ALTITUDE TRAMPOLINE PARK from 4-8… and then heading over to Smashburger for a bite to eat! Proceeds go towards the In Progress Fund so that we can make the arts accessible for homeschooling families and the communities they live in! Join us…. you will have fun, eat great food, and it will be for a great cause!
