My name is Jason Hendardy
I am a video director / content creator / photographer from Oakland, California, who's drawn to a good story. Fascinated by the unique, unexpected and weird, I believe a well told story can be inspiring and motivational. I root for the underdog but also think the villain is equally as interesting.
I am a sucker for good food, music, books, and traveling. I grew up skateboarding, touring in bands and making home movies. In the past I ran a vinyl based record label called Loglady Records and was part of an art collective called Drone Dungeon.
I am available for freelance work.
