Jason's love for databases began at a very early age when he decided to help his mother start organizing church donations electronically and quickly discovered the elegance of managing data in a database.
While studying Computer Science and graduating magna cum laude, his interest grew as he played key roles in several development projects, managed mission-critical databases, and eventually transitioned into business intelligence.
Following his entrepreneurial passion, he embraced his natural talent and created Magnara - offering database and business intelligence services to major corporations and government organizations.
Aside from tackling large data challenges, Jason loves to exercise, play drums, hang out with his kids, and invest in real estate.
