Jason’s experience with Canada’s largest gaming expo, EGLX, showed just how wide the Canadian video game sector is. Through this experience he was inspired to create XP Gaming Inc. to better connect the video game industry and the amazing talented professionals in it through a combination of B2B events, education, and career development initiatives. Today, XP Gaming hosts the XP Game Developer Summit, Canada’s premiere B2B conference, multiple education initiatives for aspiring game developers and operates the largest job board for the video game industry - and they’re just getting started.
He has a Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Windsor as well as a 3D animation diploma from CD-ED. He's a proud father, a gamer and an avid aficionado of wine and coffee.
