Summary

I am an Freelance Social Media/Communications Professional based in the New York City Metro Area looking for full time or contact employment with an Agency or In-House company in New York City. 

My current projects and ever growing connection with the Social/ Digital Media community has propelled an interest into a career move. 

My past administrative work experience has aided me in mastering problem solving and research skills. Throughout my years as an actor/ musician I've gained extensive communication, creativity, and interpersonal skills. All of these combined have helped prepare me for my career Social/ Digital Media Marketing.

Genuine, professional, and polite while bringing everything to me on time and in budget. I highly recommend working with Jason and have never been let down sending him as a referral. Every client of mine that has worked with him has called me to thank me personally for sending Jason to work with them. He is consistently a pleasure to do business with.”

I would hire Jason again for any project that my department may need assistance with. Jason was always courteous, prompt, and a well organized individual.”
