Jason – Downtown

Greetings, fellow NYC pet parents! My name is Jason. I was born in Skokie, Illinois, moved to New Jersey at 5 and then crossed the bridge into the Big Apple to study at Hunter College. I’ve been a Manhattan East-sider ever since.

From my first dog job at Bide-a-Wee 14 years ago, I’ve only had jobs that involved dogs. And though I majored in comparative religion and philosophy, the biggest lessons I’ve learned have been from them: Live in the moment. Love unconditionally. Playing is fun. Smelling something will tell you what it is.

When I’m not playing with, taking care of and being continually inspired by K9s, I play drums in a rock trio and a comedy/music duo. I’m also really close to finishing that first screenplay. It has dogs in it.
