Jason is the founder and CEO of social media education company Social Fresh. After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of North Carolina Charlotte, he went on to work in leadership training and the agency world.
Jason worked for two agencies in North Carolina as a creative lead and social media expert before starting his own social media agency in 2008. After seeing the education gap first hand between a "want" for social media and the benefit/investment in social media marketing, it was clear a company like Social Fresh was badly needed.
Social Fresh is now almost four years old, hosting 15 social media conferences, hosting hundreds of thousands of visitors a month online, and creating a massive library of free and paid online social media training options for marketers.
Jason is also an industry speaker and analyst who has been feature on MSNBC, PBS, NPR and many other networks. He has also been featured in the NY Times, USA Today, Washington Post, and others. He has keynoted the popular European conference Internet Hungary, and regularly speaks at events such as Blogworld, GeoM, PRSA, AAF, Search Exchange and more.
