  1. Are you originally from San Antonio?

No, I’m originally from Prince George, Virginia. My entire family has served in the military, so we moved around a lot, but that’s where we put our roots.

  1. When did you know you wanted to work in the tech industry?

It just came natural to me. My mom is a computer programmer and my dad is a system consultant for Dell. Growing up, we were always around spare computer parts. Instead of buying gaming consoles, we had to build computers if we wanted to play our favorite games.

  1. What’s been your favorite project to work on so far with WebTegrity?

My favorite project with WebTegrity has been working with the University of Texas San Antonio. I have a lot of family that graduated from UTSA, and I’m a huge fan of their athletic program. Being able to work with them professionally has been a lot of fun.

I’m an avid gamer and firearm enthusiast. My YouTube channel, Sergeant Merrell, has about 70,000 subscribers. I make videos about playing games and shooting various firearms.

“From Kori”

Jason joined our team as an unpaid intern for his senior project in college. As soon as he came on board I knew this guy was different. He asked all the right questions and was eager to learn. I consider him a unicorn. He can design. He can develop. He fully understands conversion theory and color theory. He can dream up a marketing concept and can help convey that message with a purpose on your digital presence. He’s a big part of our team’s leadership as our Creative Director and I’m so thankful that he’s been willing to work hard to help our company grow.
