Jason is an editor, copywriter, and creative director who has worked in the industry for more than a decade. He brings a highly technical background to his reviews, but focuses on simplifying that technology for the average homeowner.
As a recent homeowner himself, he’s spent the better part of recent years painstakingly laying out his new house, focusing on smart home tech like smart locks, thermostats, security camera systems, and lighting. He also has a deep knowledge in audio-visual tech, helping readers to navigate (and simplify) the often complicated world of sound systems, home theater setups, TVs, speakers, and more.
My favorite recent home purchase is a trash can. Stay with me here: The Simple Human 45L Rectangular Step trash can was the fourth trash can he went through before settling on his forever can. Skimping on a trash can just means you’ll be buying another one within 4 months’ time. Simple Human brings elegance, design, and most importantly, long-lasting durability to an important fixture in every home.
