My name is Jason. My wife, our 7 kids, one yellow lab, and I reside in the Nashville, TN area. Our kids consider me to be an expert pancake and popcorn maker, although they highly question my dad joke expertise.
I believe my purpose is to equip people to be life-givers.
Over the years, I have been affirmed as a strategist, communicator, writer, futurist, content creator, starter, leadership developer, team-builder, and educator. I have started non-profits, churches, businesses, networks, leadership residencies, podcasts, and even a lawn mowing business at age 13.
I’ve also written a few books as well as a lot of articles and PRs and research reports, some of which you can find links to below.
Most recently, I have been Content Lead for TRONDAO.org, the largest Decentralized Autonomous Organization on Earth, representing a public blockchain and cryptocurrency ecosystem with the second largest Total Value Locked (TVL) among all blockchains, next to Ethereum, and the most daily active users for any DeFi network.
My diverse experiences give me a
UNIQUE VIEW into the FUTURE
of FAITH and FINANCE.
That's why I created DECENTRAFIVE - to empower and inspire decentralized faith and decentralized finance via five-minute learning videos and five coaching tracks for individuals as well as teams from churches, nonprofits, and companies. This matters right now more than most realize, because of the emerging reality I call the 2nd Renaissance and the Decentralized Industrial Revolution.
I enjoy creating content and writing copy on faith, FinTech, DeFi, AI, SEC basketball, movies, music, and culture.
On the side, I am:
(1) an adjunct professor at Belmont University, where I taught the first ever blockchain and NFT tech course.
(2) a church and non-profit speaker, equipper, and strategist
(3) a Juice Plus+ and whole health advocate, which also includes Tower Gardens (holler if you're curious).
(4) Batman (but one of these is not true).
My overall EXPERIENCES include:
:: 25 years married and 21 years as a dad
:: 25 years of leadership and equipping experience
:: 25 years as an on-stage communicator
:: 19 years as a published author on the page and online
