Jason has enjoyed the dirt ever since he was little, helping his Great Grandfather in his garden. Raised on the East side of Oahu he attributes his upbringing to teaching him the love for the land. Over the years he and his wife have traveled abroad experiencing other amazing cultures and beautiful landscapes.

After moving back to Oahu in 2010, he was a TA for The Green House Hawaii's LEAP Program that educates keiki & young adults about sustainable living practices such as composting & urban gardening. Also a graduate of the UH Master Gardener program, Jason continues to hone his skills in the plant world and enjoys spending time in nature, hiking, surfing and traveling.
