Jason provides an interesting perspective on chasing the things he loves. He is the publisher of Fretboard Journal, a magazine he started with passion. Fretboard Journal is a sophisticated and beautiful publication geared toward die-hard fans of all-things-guitar. Jason talks about leaving a good career to start a magazine from the ground up, risks and sacrifices, building and being part of a community, and he sheds a little light on what it is like to be a father and husband while taking the road less traveled.
Mentions: Michael John Simmons, Blake Mills, Surfers Journal, John Fahey, Derek Trucks, Earl Scruggs, Nels Cline, Bill Frissell, and Fretboard Summit.
