Who am I?
My name’s Jason - nothing like the Bateman, Sudekis, or serial killer varieties. I’m an art director in advertising, working to use my creative skills for good. I’m passionate about politics, gun safety, LGBTQA+ advocacy, feminism, and I chase down every opportunity I can to make the world even a teeny bit better. My patron is Lady Gaga. Or maybe Sascha Velour, my undisputed queen and icon of RuPaul’s Drag Race. My latest mission is to buy a hat from Gladys Tamez in LA, the designer of Gaga’s pink Joanne cowboy hat.
I was born in Texas, raised in Oregon, now enjoying my 20’s in NYC. I grew up listening to Wynonna, Bonnie Raitt, Lyle Lovett, and Queen on cassettes in my mom’s 92 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. These days I’m rocking out to Bob Moses, too. I studied journalism and Italian in college, but there were enough food bloggers on the internet, so I became an art director. I believe empathy, positivity, and the never-ending hunt to find decent TexMex in NYC fuels who I am - Jason Murray.
