About Jason

I have produced, written and directed 4 seasons of the Irish TV sitcom series "Bridget & Eamon". I won 2 IFTA (Irish Film & Television Academy) awards for my work on this show. The show was made for Irish national broadcaster RTÉ and also airs on UKTV GOLD and Amazon Prime in the US.

I wrote, directed and produced 80 episodes of "Republic of Telly" RTÉ 2's flagship comedy show across 8 seasons.

I directed the sci-fi drama feature / transmedia project "Collider" for beActive Media released in 2013.

My short films have screened in many international film festivals and on national television. Awards include Best Direction at Fastnet Film Festival 2010 for "TUFTY", Kinsale Sharks New Director Award 2009 and Europe's largest screenplay prize, the Oscar Moore Award. I also co-wrote and directed the popular online comedy series, "BUTCHERS", for RTÉ Storyland.
