I am a seasoned autodidactic mobile web application developer that adheres to the highest level of semantic standards and architectures. Since 1994, I've been exposed to cutting-edge technology while working for agencies, direct clients, companies and individuals. My passion is rooted in finding efficiency in digital communication though visual arts. I have experience leading distributed development teams, developing complex mobile web applications in an Agile environment, executing social campaigns, building web services, prototyping new concepts, and optimizing workflows.
I love to work with people who are more knowledgeable than I am. I ask a ton of questions and strive to always be learning. I work extremely well with others and can juggle many things at once. I am highly adaptable, dependable and flexible with the ability to accurately estimate effort requirements.
I was the primary developer on this responsive AngularJS/HTML5 Canvas and Node application. Users can customize all aspects of a knife including uploading their own art, custom text and blade shapes. Customizations animate on screen using HTML5 Canvas, handles are programmatically colorized and final renders are generated with Node and sent to the engraver machines.
I created this AngularJS scratcher game for the Oregon Lottery. The app presents a series of timed games testing the user's knowledge of Oregon landmarks.
This iOS native app helps people create custom polls rendered with dynamic infographics. I created the web frontend for the poll receivers which provided real-time animated responses using web sockets, Node and Express with a Parse.com MongoDB backend.

This was my first Angular project. It suggests recipes depending on your mood. I created the UI with Sass and Angular and a separate dev team compiled it with Cordova/Phonegap.
Creative Asylum (my client for which work was done on the project: Disney Channel Games) won the 2008 Emmy Award for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media. Our team's competition included: Bravo’s “Project Runway”, “Top Chef”, ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars”, and CBS’s “Big Brother”.
I received this award from XPLANE Corp. for innovative thinking in developing a website for Intel for the construction of their New Mexico facility. The project involved interactive 3D renderings for the environmental impact of various areas. All data was real-time and included a Wowza Media server and Amazon EC2 Server Instance.
I had the privilege of working with Jason for a short period of time at the Dachis Group. Although our time together was brief, it was immediately apparent that Jason has a deep and thorough grasp on technology. When faced with difficult questions on the project we teamed up on, he was quick to offer numerous technical solutions to answer those questions. He was a project manager's dream since he instilled confidence in the fact that he would get his projects completed in a thoughtful and timely manner.Bob White

Jason has the ability to accurately assess a situation and provide an appropriately targeted solution. Even as a technologist, Jason has a keen sense of design, providing a nuance of detail that few other technologists exhibit. Jason is a partner you can rely on. He's easy going, friendly and open to ideas. He continuously strives to learn and improve his game. If he doesn't know the answer, which is seldom, he will find out…quickly.Marvin Gaviola
