He became a commissioned abstract painter in high school and then triple majored in art, art history, and pre-medicine at Duke University. Between 2003 and 2014, Jason opened and grew Vastu in Washington DC which became a leading modern furniture retailer, art gallery, and interior design firm.

With a renewed passion and evolved design aesthetic, Jason returned to the US and partnered with Sarita to form Interior Matter.
