Jason is true kid at heart. Anything that involves play or being active is fair game for him. This very well could explain the hobbies and career path he's taken throughout the years. In his professional life, Jason serves as the Assistant Director for the Department of Intramurals & Recreation at the University of Pittsburgh. In his roll he helps to oversee all aspects of campus recreation for the University community, including club sports, intramural leagues, aquatics, special events and facility rentals. 
 
Prior to working at Pitt, Jason was Director of Aquatics at Central York High School in York, PA. During his time there he oversaw all programs and operations for a brand new, state of the art natatorium. He was also the head coach and president of Central York Aquatics (CYA), a competitive age group swim team that he grew to a 140 member club.
 
Jason earned Bachelor and Master Degrees from the University of Pittsburgh and was a member of the Varsity Swimming & Diving Team where he broke
several team records, earned back to back MVP awards, earned Academic All-American status, and was the 2006 recipient of the Varsity Walk Blue-Gold Award. In 2008, Jason competed in the 2008 U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials, placing 48th overall in the 100M Butterfly.
 
In his spare time Jason enjoys spending time with his wife (Megan), two kids (Jenna & Jacob) and two dogs (Riley & Carey). He also enjoys cycling, family runs, and of course working on his project, Active Cities.
 
Jason's points for success:
- Be observant of the world around you and always be thinking.
- Remain curious and continually explore new ideas.
- Never lose the desire to achieve, it's your driving force.
