Biography

Jason began working as an Academic Advisor at Pitt in the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences in 2011, and later joined the Honors College in January 2013. He is always happy to speak with students, so feel free to stop by and chat. Some of his responsibilities include discussing general advising questions, assisting with writing personal statements, exploring and planning multiple majors, and coordinating the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Research Fellowships. He also facilitates the interdisciplinary Honors Seminar for all freshmen Chancellor’s Scholars.

As a Pittsburgh native, he’s always eager to talk about the city. He regularly teaches a section of Freshman Seminar entitled “Writing Pittsburgh,” a first year writing course that explores the city’s neighborhoods and its representations in media and culture. Jason’s nonfiction has most recently appeared in The Rumpus. 

In his free time, you’ll find him looking for new places to eat (feel free to make recommendations), pushing his bike up the hills of Pittsburgh, writing, looking at old photos, and exploring the peculiarities of the Pittsburgh landscape.
