Jason is a full-stack developer with a keen eye for design and over a dozen years' experience. As a self-taught developer, his M.O. has always been to figure out the skills he needs to solve the challenges put before him and to meet them head-on, and he has never met a challenge he couldn't overcome. He does not miss deadlines, and he leaves a trail of happy clients and managers in his wake.
Jason is now available for hire
