Jason provides technical assistance to agencies in San Francisco, Santa Clara, Napa, and Shasta Counties, helping people who operate homeless services identify and implement cutting-edge practices for budgeting, committee design, data quality, data security, and performance evaluations. As part of HomeBase's Data and Innovation Team, Jason is also working on exciting new features for the next version of HomeBase's PRogram Evaluation and Scoring TOol ("PRESTO"), a web-based tool that helps communities automatically identify opportunities for improvement. Jason also participates in the national Healthcare and Housing (H2) Systems Integration Initiative, designing tools to help homeless people enroll in Medicaid and access housing-related case management services.
Prior to joining HomeBase, Jason sued slumlords and subprime mortgage brokers as a Litigation Associate at boutique law firms in Oakland and San Francisco. Jason holds a B.A. in political science from Yale University and a J.D. from Harvard Law. He is licensed to practice law in California, in Massachusetts, and in his hometown of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where the water is always warm enough to go surfing without a wetsuit, but the waves are (alas) far too small.
