Hi there. I’m Jason. I make things. I’m all over the internet, but this site is a kind of hub to all the various things I do. It’s the home for all the things I do that don’t have their own websites. You can see the books I’ve written, some of the artwork I’ve created, and even some of the chunks of code that I’ve hacked together. And like any proper site, there’s also a blog that I update sporadically.

Larger projects that I’m involved with have their own websites, linked at the bottom of the site. If you’re interested in the totally sweet open source “Swiss Army chainsaw” of computer graphics, Blender? I’ve got a website (and a book) for that. I use open source tools for just about everything I do, and I have a podcast for discussing that process and lifestyle. Curious about wooden jewelry that I create? Bentwood Forge is the place to go. I also have pen names for the fiction that I write. Ernie Vance is nerdy absurdist humor and you can see evidence of that on Definitely True. J.J. Vega is where I write dark technofantasy. The first book release of that is coming later this year.

Check back here regularly to keep up with what I’m up to… or for more direct access, you can join my mailing list (also at the bottom of the site).
