Jason has been a radio news reader for twenty five years. During that time, he’s also been a TV news reporter and a film journalist and reviewer. He’s made short films, exhibited his photography and written four children’s books, the first two of which were published in October 2019.
Excited about introducing his own children to the enriching joys of reading at an early age, Jason found that many of the books he’d enjoyed as a child himself were nothing like as satisfying to the adults reading them out aloud, so he set out to write books that he would want to read to his children.

Jason is one of the regular news readers on BBC Radio 2 and 6Music, having previously been a news reader and presenter on 5live. He’s also worked as a TV news reporter on the BBC News Channel.

Under his own Eyeful Pictures brand, he made five shorts in Los Angeles, including the writers’ strike satire Dumbstruck and the romantic comedy 2 Hour Parking. He was recently the associate producer on the British thriller The Redeeming and he is in development on three of his own features.
