Jason has an Honours degree in Sociology and a Masters by research in Media and Communications. His research interests have taken him to many remote places in Australia and also to Central America, where he worked with a United Nations sponsored radio station for a short period. Jason has over ten years of experience working collaboratively with Central Australian Aboriginal people and for a number of year's assisted remote Aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory to establish digital archives of cultural and historical material. He has also been engaged as a documenter of cultural knowledge, mythology and social histories within the Anmatyerr region.
Jason's work history includes research consultancies with Aboriginal organisations as well as Australian Universities and government agencies regarding the design and delivery of cultural heritage services for Indigenous communities. Jason's research focuses on the Central Australian region where he has conducted extensive field and archival research. He has recently developed a detailed methodology for indexing the field diaries of the seminal anthropologist/linguist T.G.H. Strehlow and is now working on an online exhibition of the Spencer and Gillen corpus.
