Born and raised in Sri Lanka to an American father and an Indian mother, Jason’s roots lie in a global, multicultural setting. Amongst the foray of words that help describe his youth are: travel, civil war, rainforests, tennis and tsunami. His time growing up in Sri Lanka is remembered with much fondness and is believed to have fundamentally shaped his views. Upon graduating from the International Baccalaureate program, Jason took a gamble in moving to Vancouver to pursue further studies at the University of British Columbia. His interests saw him excel in Political Science; fusing his writing capabilities with a keen willingness expand his knowledge base.
Five years down the line and Jason’s work experiences have varied dramatically. He has worked as an adventure guide, an office administrator, a sport and facilities supervisor and a brand ambassador. And having recently received his undergraduate degree in both English Literature and Political Science Jason looks to the future with an eye to the pen. At some point a Master’s degree in Journalism is on the cards, but in the time being Jason is looking to continue writing about topics of great interest. Having recently joined the ProspectingJournal team he now looks to master everything the financial markets can throw at him. Look to Jason for an ambitious, young writer that continues to add personality and panache to his daily contributions.
Angela Bouzanis ~ Account Executive
The professional, responsible and reliable face to our team, Angela draws on an outstanding work ethic, strong rapport and sound interpersonal skills in making the first contact with our diverse clients.
We were lucky enough to enlist Angela’s services shortly after she graduated from the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 2011 with a BA in Economics. During her undergraduate years, Angela reinforced her macro and micro business knowledge with key managerial, promotional and communications positions. She acted as a Recreational Manager for a community centre, learning the key real-world skills associated with a managerial role. She also established herself as a stand-out individual in a communications position at UBC, which formed the foundation for her strong understanding of media and technology. And on top of her technical know-how, Angela’s extensive experience in supervising public outreach activities for a wide range of organizations in Vancouver gives her the edge that most professionals lack: superior interpersonal skills—the perfect vehicle to communicate our clients’ messages.
