Security & Safety Ace
With more than 30 years of experience in security, electronics manufacturing, safety, and quality management, Jason draws from a diverse background to develop innovative security designs. His clientele includes large tech companies and Fortune 100 companies as well as global architecture firms. He has over ten years’ experience working in semiconductor critical infrastructure construction, operations and developing building automation with the goal of reducing risk in processes and operations. Along with his expertise in security systems, Jason is a Certified ISO auditor and a former OSHA safety officer, hazmat and incident command, and brings this attention to safety to all projects.
From the earth to the stars to the ocean… Jason’s other interest is scuba diving. He’s a PADI Divemaster, got his daughter into Scuba diving, and dives regularly in California’s famous Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. What does he love about it? “It’s like flying,” he says, “and it allows you to explore a part of the world you’d otherwise never see.” When he’s not under saltwater he keeps a little bit of it by his side in a 120-gallon saltwater reef aquarium he maintains at home.
As a seventh-generation San Francisco Bay Area resident, Jason comes from a long line of farmers. His family has been running a fruit stand in Los Gatos for 50 years. He keeps the tradition alive in his own urban homestead by cultivating bees, growing fruit trees, and keeping chickens. “They’re an interesting pet,” he says of the latter. “They’re one of the few pets that ‘pays rent’ — by laying eggs, eating bugs, and providing compost.” Like any good tech-savvy urban farmer, he’s rigged his chicken coop with a camera feed so he can keep an eye on his birds in case anything runs afoul.
When things are looking a little too earthy, Jason takes to star-gazing. He has a computer-guided telescope capable of finding and tracking heavenly targets, which keeps things simple. Astronomy “makes you see the world in a different way,” Jason says. “You understand how small we actually are in the universe.”
