Jason joined INGENIUM a year-and-a-half after its doors opened. He began in Operations at the Escondido branch. Moving from the Commercial Real Estate industry, this opportunity enabled Jason to learn the foundational basics of Hazardous Waste. After two years in the field, Jason proposed to leverage his law school education and business acumen into a hybrid position of compliance and business development initiatives. After a year, Jason moved into a full-time business development position and renamed the department – Innovation. Since then, he has led the Innovation department as its Director for nearly a decade and responsible for program development, vendor relationships, sales solutions, and an overall strategic contributor.

During Jason’s tenure, he developed the Customer Portal (INsight) and built a dedicated data team to maintain the backend systems. He has also redefined INGENIUM’s Emerald Energy program and created Bio-INergy and Emerald Energy Plus. Most recently, Jason crafted INGENIUM’s Destination Zero Certification program. Jason has also been instrumental with out-of-the-box solutions for clients seeking innovation surrounding challenging waste streams.

A self-proclaimed data geek and techie, Jason loves to learn about the new technologies, facilities and approaches to waste reduction and beneficial reuse. In his spare time, he dedicates everything to his eleven-year-old clone, and enjoys music, concerts, sporting events, video games, movies and streaming networks. Originally from New York, Jason spends extensive time traveling to the East coast where his family and girlfriend reside. Jason received a Juris Doctor from Thomas Jefferson School of Law, and a Bachelor of Science in Public Relations from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.
