Hey, I'm Jason. I'm a designer living in Chicago. I moved a lot as a kid. That process gave me an understanding of embracing the unkown. Its a big part of why I love software is its inheritly etheral nature. There's something special about finding order in chaos, keeping it simple. Have fun, be real to eachother, give a shit about what you do.

I think websites should be far more magical.
