Hey, I’m Jason North, the newest member of the MayeCreate team. Who’s Jason in a nutshell? A marketing nerd who loves making cool stuff and getting great results for our clients.
I’m 32. It feels weird to be in my thirties because I still feel like a goofy 15 year old at heart. I’ve been married to my wife, Kezia, for 5 years (we just had our anniversary!). No kids and no fur babies yet, though — adulting is hard enough!
I’ve been playing the drums since I was 12, and I love learning about all kinds of nerdy things — machine learning, artificial intelligence, philosophy, spirituality, technology, and more.
I loved going to the library or Barnes and Noble with my mom growing up, and she always encouraged me to be a learner. I still remember the personal pizzas from Pizza Hut the library would give you if you read a certain number of books. I wish they had that for adults! Man, I loved those pizzas.
Also, I love Columbia. It’s the coolest (and most beautiful) town I’ve lived in. Born in Oklahoma, then working in Texas, I can’t say I’ve had much greenery-slash-scenery to enjoy, so CoMo makes my heart happy.
Not to mention the food! Shakespeare’s, Logboat, Flat Branch, Addison’s – yes, please.
I’m fortunate to work for a killer marketing and web design agency like MayeCreate without a degree. I went to technical school for marketing for two years, and from there had a bunch of really awesome leaders who took a chance on me, despite not having a degree. Apparently, people still think I’m somewhat smart and know what I’m doing. 😉
That said, I have worked really hard to get where I am today and have had a lot of great mentors. I’ve been able to work for incredible organizations like MarketScale in Dallas, Columbia Safety, Love INC, and now MayeCreate!
For the most part, I’ve worked on extremely small marketing teams, so I have a pretty diverse skill set. In addition to marketing skills like writing, design and analytics, I also know HTML, CSS, SQL and love hashing out some pivot charts and Vlookups in Excel. I also know a bit of Python for data analysis.
Right now, I’m working on deepening my skills in video production and Facebook advertising. These mediums are really important in the industry today, so it’s been fun to produce positive results in these areas for clients.
I love my work because I think marketing is a superpower — it helps generate important ideas, causes, missions and even companies. If you have a little bit of empathy for people’s problems, you can use marketing to make a positive impact on the world.
The best part of my job is getting to use that superpower by working with amazing clients. From construction to non-profits, I get to learn about all kinds of industries and adopt a passion for what they do. Their work makes a difference, so I get to make a difference by helping them.
MayeCreate is amazing because of the people. I’m privileged to work with quirky, smart, high-caliber MayeCreaters and who come together to do some pretty cool things. They challenge me to be better at what I do and I feel inspired whenever I walk into our office every day.
Thanks for taking the time to read a bit about me. Hopefully I’ll get to work with you!

He’s married to his wife Kezia, loves reading, and playing the drums. He also likes geeking out on data and code and believes marketing is a superpower because it can spread ideas and missions that make the world a better place.
