Biography

Jason specializes in solving complex problems at the intersection of government and business. His practice focuses on government procurement and contracts, alternative project delivery (Public-Private Partnerships (P3s) and Design-Build), infrastructure projects, special project consulting, economic development, local government law, and public finance. Jason led the team that developed the first local government P3 in Kentucky’s history and represents a number of cities, counties, state agencies, and private entities developing P3s, including utilities, transportation, and social infrastructure projects. He also helps governments navigate the regulatory requirements tied to their American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds.

Prior to joining Frost Brown Todd, Jason was a Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School’s Government Performance Lab, assessing and designing a Pay For Success public-private partnership program in Louisville, Kentucky.

After graduating from West Point, Jason served as an active duty Infantry Officer in the U.S. Army for over nine years, where he commanded multiple organizations, planned combat and training operations, and deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq. He then transferred to the U.S. Army Reserve, where he has served as a Civil Affairs Officer the last seven years and is currently a Lieutenant Colonel.

Jason leverages his eighteen years of public sector leadership and strategic planning experience to help his clients with their legal needs.
