Hi, I'm Jason.
I'm a designer, videographer and photographer working in Southeast Michigan. I have a passion for marketing and storytelling, and enjoy combining these for the teams and projects I am a part of. Whether the work I create is still, interactive, or in motion, I bring effective communication and creative, consistent branding to your project.
I'm currently the Director of Media Production at Argonomo
, a venture studio and creative agency in Farmington Hills. We focus on branding for startups as well as established businesses where we offer graphic design, web development, mobile applications, videography, photography, and other business and technology services. We also partner with and take stakes in startup companies to brand them and bring them to market.
Before working at Argonomo I worked at Oakland University
in the Communications and Marketing department as the Digital Strategy Manager. I worked with the digital marketing, publications, and social media teams to create general OU branding, as well as more specific web and video projects to promote the university.
I have also ran my own freelance business working for many businesses and non-profit organizations in Southeast Michigan. Some of my current and past work has been with American Heart Association, Downtown Detroit Partnership, Automation Alley, Brine Lacrosse, Warrior Sports, Michigan Good Food Charter, DTE Energy, Ford Motor Company through GTB, WeWork through Identity PR, Detroit IT, Engineers Without Borders-Detroit, Michigan Travels, Verde Media, SANLUIS Rassini and National Arab American Medical Association.
I've also worked on the marketing team for Grid4 Communications, a telecommunications company, where I helped to re-brand the business, and also for The Detroit News' design team.
I graduated from Oakland University in Rochester, MI with my B.A. in Studio Art and minor in Graphic Design. As a student, I worked as the Design Editor for OU's student newspaper. I received several recognitions by the university for my work with student organizations and the art department including the Undergraduate Distinguished Achievement Award and Student Service Award in Art and Art History.
I have received 3 MarCom awards for my annual report and brochure design work with Automation Alley in 2012 and 2014. While I was a student at Oakland University, I was honored with the "Student Designer of the Year" award through the Student Society for News Design for my work with The Oakland Post (OU's student newspaper). The newspaper's overall redesign and individual page designs were also awarded several state and national awards through SSND and the Michigan Press Association.
I'm currently an instructor in Oakland University's Center for Autism where I teach video, photography and design classes to students. I am also a member of the board of directors for the Oakland University Art Gallery
I have a wonderful wife, Angie and we love to travel as much as we can and visit new restaurants together. I also love to take photos of everything we see along the way.
