Jason has extensive experience in the technology industry. He started his career as an electronics technician installing and servicing communications systems, including intercoms and physical computer networks. During the recession he enrolled in college and went on to join his institution’s IT department. While there, not only was Jason recognized for his academic excellence, but he also received the A+ certificate of technical proficiency.

After earning an Associate Degree, he matriculated to the University of Hawaii to pursue his growing interest in computer programming.

While in school, Jason applied the skills and knowledge he honed working with the outstanding IT professionals at the college by helping members of the community with their personal computer problems. As the demand from the community grew, Jason eventually founded his own company and began working exclusively for his own clientele.

After more than 2 years running Lakona Computers, many satisfied customers, and many lessons learned; Jason came to a reckoning that his business was not growing as fast as his passion for programming. He decided to reenter the job market in search of a position that would foster this interest.

Jason is currently working as an application developer for Bayer Crop Science on Maui. He also does freelance programming work on the side on Upwork and tutors students of computer science and software development.

Jason is also interested in theology, philosophy, economics, mathematics – statistics, probability, and chaos – and history. He enjoys hiking, stargazing, and other outdoor activities, as well as reading classical literature. Complexity, art, and freedom pique Jason’s interest and his enthusiasm and passion drive him to keep reaching for deeper understanding.
