Hi, I'm Jason. I am a historian of modern America studying the environment, cities, and politics, often using digital tools. I am a developer-scholar at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media and a member of the Department of History and Art History at George Mason University.


You can find much more on my publications page and digital history page. Here are a few things I'm currently working on:

  • Rebecca Wingo, Paul Schadewald, and I co-edited Digital Community Engagement: Partnering Communities with the Academy (University of Cincinnati Press, 2020).
  • I am currently completing a book tentatively titled The Nature of the Valley: Silicon Valley and the Transformation of American Environmental Politics for the University of Oklahoma Press.


I teach classes on data science, design, visualization, and digital history. You can find my most recent syllabi and workshops on my teaching page.
