Jason has over 20 years of professional services experience in various roles and industries and almost a decade in the polar expedition travel industry. His diverse professional background and passion for expedition travel combine to ensure a client and partner’s expectations are always met and exceeded.
Graduating with a Bachelor of Technology (Environmental Studies) and a post-graduate diploma in Information Technology, Jason moved into the consulting world (geotechnical soil/groundwater remediation, software) with a goal to always travel and explore new places regardless of his career trajectory. His work has taken him around the world and virtually every continent.
Leaving the professional services world of engineering and hi-tech behind to focus on expedition travel was an easy transition having grown up on the island of Newfoundland in the north Atlantic and having spent many formative years in Labrador.
A PADI Divemaster and Expedition Leader on numerous Arctic adventures in Greenland, Hudson Bay, Baffin and Ellesmere Island, he has worked extensively in the field managing expeditions. His background, easy-going demeanour and enthusiasm are traits his friends, ‘soon-to-be friends’, family and colleagues always appreciate. Jason savours the opportunity to share the raw beauty of both poles with those who are going back and those who have never been.
