Jason is the survivor of a traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic epilepsy—a life-changing experience abruptly terminating his prolonged quest to become a professional musician.
Jason received a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Seattle Pacific University and an MFA in Creative Writing from Chapman University. He lives with his wife in Seattle—and he’s hard at work on his first novel.
