Jason Varvaro

Jason broke his ankle a few weeks before entering middle school and was forced to make his first life-altering decision… Basketball or music? 20 years later, he still involved in the music industry and the Boston Celtics are patiently waiting for him to change his mind while he’s still in his prime.

His journey took him to Boston-Karlsruhe-Boston-Santa Barbara, before he finally settled to live in Montreal with his wife Jennifer, son Rémi and my daughter Naela, where the winters are (really!) long and cold, but he loves the smell of burning firewood coming from the chimneys.

In his free time, he plays Footbag and Freestyle Frisbee and is always looking to Spread the Jam! He loves fresh produce, especially mangoes. Dot, Hatcher and Kent are among his current favorites.
