Born and raised in the small town of Maumee, Ohio, Jason began playing the drums at the age of 3. Coming from a family of musicians, he had an abundance of inspiration growing up. Throughout elementary school Jason was a self taught drummer, who later studied under Scott Kretzer in middle school, which led to marching tenors in the Maumee High School Drumline from 2000-2004. Following high school, he began touring with his band, Amanna 18, sharing the stage with many national acts such as Fallout Boy, Amber Pacific, Hit The Lights, Plain White T's, Paramore, and Gym Class Heroes, as well as playing the 2006 Vans Warped Tour. Jason has kept himself extremely engaged in the music scene by playing everything from local shows, church's, and studio sessions, to small town tours, multiple album recordings, and independent work as well. With styles ranging from R&B, Gospel, and Funk to Hard Rock, Reggae and Jazz, Jason is still continuing to grow and develop as a musician. Currently playing at many local venues and events with various local artists such as Breaking Ground, Joe Woods, Frank May, and Scott Ballard.
