Hi, I’m Jason Clarke. I’m a writer and family guy interested in technology, movies, and travel. This is my personal website, where I’ve been writing since 2003.
By day, I’m Director, New Client Strategy with 10up, a global digital agency, where I help current and potential clients plan and build world-class websites. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family, reading, watching movies, and being outside. Previously, I’ve been a front-end developer, agency leader, consultant in the early days of blogs, author of a best-selling book, and groundskeeper with a college facilities department.
- Here’s a list of all the comedians I’ve seen live in person going back to 2002ish
- According to Harvard University, I’m a member of Generation X. I recommend Generation X, the book that gave my generation its name.
- In 2004, I appeared on The O’Reilly Factor, an infamous cable news news show
- Here’s a running list of some of my favorite quotes with links to their speakers.
If you’re not familiar with Gallup’s CliftonStrengths StrengthsFinder self-assessment, I recommend you take it. My StrengthsFinder themes are:
- Input: I enjoy collecting and learning information to help me gain a wider perspective and make better decisions.
- Restorative: I focus on identifying what is specifically wrong with a given situation and how I can help solve it.
- Connectedness: I empathize with people’s unique situations and believe that many of us share common challenges and goals.
- Strategic: I like to continue to think about how to solve problems, even when the answer isn’t obvious.
- Individualization: I focus on people’s individual attributes and how they can work together to achieve goals.
