I am Jason Sherman
Entrepreneur Web Designer Videographer Creative Human
I began my journey during the dot-com boom of the 90s when I started my own Technology Consulting company after graduating Delaware Valley University with a degree in Computer Information Systems Management in 1998. I was recently flown out to Google HQ for a Lead Program Manager Developer Relations Ecosystem role (I was told I had Googleyness). Currently, I am the CEO & Co-founder for Instamour, an innovative mobile video messaging platform based out of Philadelphia. We also built a B2B version called See2B and are in private beta. I am in the middle of filming a historical Documentary about Northeast Philadelphia as well as the preservation of historic buildings in Philadelphia. You can watch me on FOX Saturday mornings at 10am EST (also on Hulu) speaking on a show called Xploration Earth 2050. I am an avid volunteer for the Philadelphia tech community as a videographer and photographer for Philly New Technology Meetup, StartupGrind (Google Entrepreneurs), and Tech in Motion Events. As a contributor for Technically Philly, I write about the thriving Philadelphia tech scene with a focus on startups. I also write entrepreneurial articles about technology, lean methodology, and the future on my news site Area Tech 51. I mentor other tech startups, college students and business owners on how to succeed using lean methodology. I created a How To Video Series hosted on Youtube. Also, I'm an avid supporter of virtual currency such as Bitcoin and have created a microsite to teach others and spread awareness. I am a drone (DJI Phantom 3 and Inspire 1) enthusiast, and run VideoDrone.me which is my aerial cinematography subdivision of DelphiaFilms.com, my film production company.
My past achievements include winning the Audience Choice award at the 2011 New Hope Film Festival for my independent film as well as landing a distribution deal. I'm also a published author as well as a classically trained violinist and was an established music producer in the late 90's. I've traveled the world extensively and have started over 10 companies since 1996 with a successful exit of my brick & mortar franchise in 2012. I love culture, languages, cooking, film, music, art, and my Shih Tzu Wolfgang. I'm an experienced graphic designer and have created hundreds of unique designs for websites and mobile apps along with developing the functionality to help bring them to life.
