Hola, my name is Jason!

Jason Beaird

I like to climb on things. Can I have a banana? Eep. Eep. I'm not really a monkey, I just play one on the internet. In real life, I'm a web designeloper. Here on my personal site, I tend to sidestep all things professional for more trivial faire. When I do write or speak about what I actually do for a living, I tend to do so elsewhere. Feel free to drop me a line if you have questions, or use that frighteningly descriptive hyperlink below to learn more.
