Originally from Philadelphia, Jason got his start on a laptop, downloading the first free version of Davinci Resolve. Determined to make a career as a professional colorist, he obsessed over the craft and technology until he found himself working at Blackmagic Design as a Davinci Resolve Product Specialist. He was then able to tour the country gaining access to top post production facilities, trade shows and training lectures as a guest and presenter.
Eventually, he worked his way over five years at BMD to excel at projects in communication, training, marketing and PR, becoming one of the only spokespeople in the US trusted to represent the company publicly, eventually creating Davinci Resolve demos for NAB and other top events.
Continuing to freelance in Philly and NYC under the alias “Good Grades”, Jason gained an additional position as colorist at NFL Films working their 16 hour Sunday game day shift as well as restoring 16mm and S16mm film whenever he could. There he found his first mentorship under Supervising Colorist Chris Pepperman. Jason joined the Colorist Society International shortly after.
Jason is additionally a Mixinglight.com podcaster & contributor. He enjoys playing Rummikub (poorly), and obsessing over post-production technology and culture.
