Jason is a freelance editor, lab technician, and independent game designer, new to the trade but full of ideas to build and stories to tell! New Fire is his first publication, but he has done playtesting for Errant Knight Games and Half Meme Press on games such as The Clay That Woke and Fragile Minds, as well as editing for New Alexandria Press on the Guardians of Peace sci-fi novel series. Jason has been a regular attendee of U-Con for many years, and actually debuted New Fire for playtesting for the first time at UCon 2010. He is thrilled beyond measure to return this year in conjunction with the release of New Fire this October!
Jason is a native of Michigan, but is currently living in Santa Barbara, California. He has a BS in Biopsychology from the University of Michigan, and is working as a research assistant at the Mesoamerican Research Center at UC Santa Barbara. He enjoys all manner of games–board games, card games, video games, drinking games, and more–but those of the role playing variety are definitely his first love. In his free time he enjoys drumming, singing, and practicing with his Atlatl.
