Jason is the co-creator of the Better Block Project, founder of the Oak Cliff Transit Authority, Bike Friendly Oak Cliff, Go Oak Cliff, and Art Conspiracy. Jason formed a passion for transportation and urban development after a visit to Europe. In 2006, he formed the Oak Cliff Transit Authority, a non-profit organization, and developed their marketing and web presence, which lead to the city of Dallas being awarded a federal stimulus grant to reintroduce a streetcar system into the city by 2013. Jason recently spearheaded the “Better Block Project,” where he organized teams of advocates to revive blighted, vacant blocks of pre-war buildings into livable, sustainable developments complete with temporary businesses, landscaping, bike lanes, and outdoor cafe seating.
