Hi, I'm Jason Garcia.
Leading creative teams is my specialty, and I strive to empower those whom I lead with inspiration, enthusiasm, humor and knowledge. I build skills, help others communicate more effectively with their words and actions, allow autonomy, and I create transparency to foster strong relationships. This is how I help my teams build brands, conceive designs, and achieve success.

Take a look through my camera’s eye—shapes, contrasts, content—
I’ve been peering through the viewfinder for a long time, but recently have chosen to see down a different path. Trips to Hong Kong and Tokyo produced photo-taking challenges. So for now, I’m trying to get back to shooting strictly black and white images. I’m not using film, but I won’t be shooting color, either. It’s time to start thinking more heavily on composition, shadows, shapes, and more. There’s no going back to a full-frame color image to crop, treat, edit, etc. –should be fun–
