Jason joins the Shiraz Events Wedding team as one of its official wedding experts after the 2013 launch of his new book GETTING GROOMED: THE ULTIMATE WEDDING PLANNER FOR GAY GROOMS, published by Chronicle Books.
Known as an expert in the field, Jason posts to a regular blog and contributes pieces to various wedding websites. Prior to Shiraz Jason worked for several years at Soho House New York as the Event and Banquet Manager and quickly became known as the in-house wedding expert. There he worked with couples on planning their special day in addition to doing freelance wedding planning. While weddings are his favorite type of event, at Soho House Jason also designed, planned, and ran fashion shows, book launches, art festivals, movie premieres, opening nights, gala dinners, and awards shows post parties. The job took him around the world from Oscar parties in L.A. to events held in chateaus in Cannes and even an underground subway station in Toronto.
Jason brings to weddings his passion for drama honed from his career and education in theatre. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre from the prestigious New World School of the Arts. Immediately after he moved to New York and had two plays produced professionally. Jason approaches all weddings with his playwriting background: What is the couple’s version of their most beautiful story to be told?
