About Jason

Jason is a native of Southern California, having grown up in Hermosa Beach and is of half Japanese and caucasian American descent. He had big dreams of being a professional athlete growing up, but a torn ACL ended his career at 18 years old. On a brash decision, Jason picked up his things and moved to NYC.


Not knowing a single person in the city, he stayed in hostels for 6 months and finally landed a job at a major commercial production company in SoHo, as a production assistant. Jason learned the ropes and grew to love the creative process behind the scenes. Back at home in L.A., he is currently founder / producer/ director at Tiger House Films.
