Jason serves as the Wedding Planner for Shiraz Events in NYC. Previously he served as the Event and Banquets Manager at the members-only Soho House New York where he designed, planned, and ran everything from awards-show parties to fashion shows and their annual Halloween party. He was known as their in-house wedding expert.
In addition to his work in events Jason is an accomplished playwright. His most recent work, THE BOYS UPSTAIRS, is a comedy about sex, dating, relationships and all the blurry lines in between. THE BOYS UPSTAIRS premiered in the 2009 New York International Fringe Festival where it played an entirely sold-out run and received critical praise including: “Did Tina Fey lend a hand in the script? It’s that clever.” In 2011 the Fringe Festival, which produces 200 plays annually, invited THE BOYS UPSTAIRS to be part of its 15th Anniversary Series honoring the top 15 shows of 15 years. THE BOYS UPSTAIRS has since been presented the Celebration Theatre in Los Angeles, the Above the Stag Theatre in London, and by Pride Films and Plays in Chicago.
Jason’s first play THE RED BOX, a historical gay love story, premiered in 2006 in Tribeca. Jason has lectured on this play in New York, Connecticut, Montreal, Poland, Prague and Israel. It continues to be presented in multiple academic settings.
Jason splits his time between Manhattan and Los Angeles with his favorite assistant, his rescue terrier Barnaby.
