Jason is a results-oriented Major Gifts professional with over 12 years of experience. Jason specializes in focused donor and portfolio management, as well as introduction of best practices and protocols, bridging the distance between organizations and their donors. (He originally wanted to be an astronaut and brings his expert Martian skills to the table.)


When he’s not ‘cracking the code’ in Major Gifting, Jason loves playing guitar and attending rock concerts. As a nationally-deployed advisor to hundreds of individual, corporate, and foundational partners, Jason has coached clients in sectors like higher education, international non-governmental charity, and healthcare. 


Jason’s fun-loving approach and deadpan sense of humor make working with him a privilege. He provides advice for dozens of Major Gifts shops throughout the United States and Israel, guiding the design, implementation, and cultivation of successful programs. Jason believes in elevating the donor relationship, resulting in a richer experience for both organizations and clients. 


Jason lives in Atlanta with his twin daughters and dog. He loves beer, swimming, traveling, and a really inappropriate joke.
