After taking apart the family VCR at age 6, Jason’s family realized that he was a very curious kid. It was apparent that he had an obsession with how things worked. It didn’t hurt that 2 of his biggest influences growing up were his great grandfather, a radio/TV engineer, and his other grandfather, a technology junkie.
After learning how to solder around age 8, Jason’s life has been driven by electronics and how they worked. He was always fixing things for various family members and by his teen years he was the go to guy for everything electronic.
By the time he was old enough to work, Jason starting working for Best Buy. This is the first time that he had exposure to many different manufacturers and A/V systems. This is where his obsession started to take shape.
In college, Jason got a job with Sound Advice. This was the first time he had been exposed to high end A/V and custom installation. Here is where he first heard about the ISF. After realizing that TVs could be made to look much better, Jason started making adjustments to his own and his friend’s TVs with various calibration DVDs.
Sound Advice failed and closed the entire chain, so Jason went back to Best Buy as a Home Theater installer. His success there led to his becoming a professional ISF calibrator. He earned his ISF Level 1 certification in 2008, and a Level II certification in 2010.
Jason remained very active in the calibrator community and assisted Joel in multiple training sessions. By 2012 after calibrating thousands of displays, Jason was brought to Best Buy Corporate Headquarters in Minneapolis and promoted to a National trainer for Home Theater installations and ISF Calibrations.
Following in the footsteps of many of the top ISF instructors, he is now an independent ISF calibrator and trainer. Jason teaches ISF certification for Best Buy, Geek Squad US, Canada and Mexico, plus the Magnolia Design Centers. Jason is available to work with local dealers, and is still accepting new clients.
Jason’s hobbies include music, TV/film, photography, cars, and of course electronics.
