About Jason


Name:  Jason, although everyone called me Monte when I was little.  Don't ask

Height:  Still taller than my children

Waist Size:  Stuck in no-man's-land of 35.  (why do mens waist sizes skip from 34-36?)

Hair:  Still some.  Brown battles grey.  Brown losing

Eyes:  Two

Status:  Married..........Gleefully

Sports:  Surf rules the roost, skiing (desperately trying to keep up with the kids), mountain biking (sadly, mostly on pavement)

Favorite Bar:  The Pickle Room in Santa Barbara, CA

Favorite Drink:  Makers Old-Fashioned - preferably with the fancy dark cherries --- not the neon red ones

Favorite Quote:  Don't cry because it's over.  Smile because it happened.  Dr. Seuss

Happiest Place on Earth:  Any beach with my wife and kids.  Unless the surf is really good --- then any beach.

Why Photography:  Because I can't draw or paint or play the ukulele
