Jason was born in Newport, Rhode Island and grew up in sunny San Diego where he took up the sport of scuba diving at an early age. He played varsity tennis in high school before attending the University of California, Davis, obtaining his CPA credentials shortly after. He started off with auditing and assurance and never looked back. For the next 20 years he built upon his experience with several different accounting firms and developed a diverse background. Client industries ranged from manufacturing, construction and textiles to restaurants, schools, and banks to name a few.
In 2005 he, his wife and two kids moved to the Portland, Oregon region and loved the climate and the culture. It was exciting to see the seasons change and enjoy the mild summers thus they’ve never left. His interests are hiking, skiing and the occasional round of golf. Whenever it’s dry he and his wife can be found kayaking on the many Oregon waterways.
