- President of Billiards Australia.

- Jason does not claim to be a great technician or cueist, but his Billiards knowledge has helped him set a Ballarat interclub record break of 228, and to win one World Ranking Event and Final of the Oceania Championships.
- Jason first picked up a cue at Monash University in 1971 (and barely attended a lecture for the next three years). Billiards hooked him from his first game – there’s something artistic and creative about it that he loves.
- Over the years he has had the great privilege of spending many hours with the likes of Tom Cleary, Jim Long, Robby Foldvari, David Collins, Danik Lucas, Matthew Bolton and Peter Gilchrist; and has picked up ideas, shots and suggestions from all of them. Billiards players never, ever stop learning. He regards the key to his Billiards knowledge is that, from early on, he was always able to realise when he had just seen a shot for the first time, and was always prepared to approach that player after the match and ask him or her about it. Billiard players love to share their knowledge!
- Jason particularly enjoys working with students who already have some basic knowledge of the game and who wish to improve their break building strategies by learning sequences of shots (including top-of-the-table play, and how to get there with minimal risk).
- With regards to coaching, Jason feels that one-off lessons to get a few tips are ok – but he prefers to work with a student, over a period of time, who will practice the shots and strategies that they discuss. If you are a competent cueist, then with Jason’s Billiards knowledge you may just make a great team! If he feels that your technique is holding you back, then he will likely refer you to another coach to work on that part of your game before working together on your Billiards knowledge.
- Jason is happy to coach in the Ballarat and/or Melbourne areas.
