Hi, I’m Jason Clarke.

I’m a family guy and writer. This is my personal website, where I’ve been writing since 2003.

I enjoy spending time with family, being in nature, reading history, watching movies, traveling, and tinkering with technology.

During the work day, I’m Director of Account Strategy with 10up, a global digital agency, where I help our clients plan and build world-class experiences for the web and mobile devices. 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.

If you’re not familiar with Gallup’s CliftonStrengths StrengthsFinder self-assessment, I recommend you take it. My StrengthsFinder themes are:

  1. Input: I enjoy collecting and learning information to help me gain a wider perspective and make better decisions.
  2. Restorative: I focus on identifying what is specifically wrong with a given situation and how I can help solve it.
  3. Connectedness: I empathize with people’s unique situations and believe that many of us share common challenges and goals.
  4. Strategic: I like to continue to think about how to solve problems, even when the answer isn’t obvious.
  5. Individualization: I focus on people’s individual attributes and how they can work together to achieve goals.
