Chief Executive Officer
Jason is a championship winning racer who is passionate about the art and science of driving. He is committed to his vision of building better, safer drivers through the application of technology and better training techniques. He loves working with kids and has coached many sports teams through the years. And yes, this whole Greenlight thing is his fault! Raised in Danville, CA he started Greenlight out of his garage (as all good start-ups do).
