Upon graduation, Jason began a career in the mineral exploration industry, working closely with geologists from some of North America's largest mining companies. Jason's experience in the field of exploration included a variety of activities that ranged from technical applications, such as drill site positioning and colour choropleth mapping, to the financial side, through venture capital operations.
After spending several years working around the world, Jason moved to Whistler to pursue a cycling career. Competing at the professional level for ten years, Jason's diligence and hard work provided success at both the national and international level.
Jason has always had a keen interest in the financial world. This developed further during his time spent working abroad. Working with both publicly traded and private companies all over the world provided great insight. He brings this experience to his role as Investment Advisor.

He has achieved honours standing in his investment industry qualification, and continues to expand his knowledge base. Jason is both insurance and options licensed, and he is also licensed to provide discretionary portfolio management services.
