asJasonAugJason Almendinger
Music & Sound Design, Minister of Technology

Jason is yet another film buff at Aaron/Stokes, having majored in filmmaking in college. He created two short films before finding himself doing location sound for dozens of independent films and TV spots (it turns out the spy enthusiast in him was drawn to the thrill of hiding microphones on actors. OK...). After the thrill passed, he took a detour into watch-making before discovering a new fascination with postproduction audio.

This led Jason to Florida where he completed an audio degree at the renowned Full Sail College of Recording. Upon moving back to Minnesota, he found a unique position at Aaron/Stokes where he contributes his considerable sound design skills while also managing the company's ever-growing computer network and music database.

When not at work, he enjoys movies, magic, competitive pistol shooting, hunting, writing, espionage, and creating numerous odd projects (?) for himself.

Jason lives in South Minneapolis with his wife Susan, son Hyde, their dog "Mrs. Garrett", "Scatman" the cat, and plant "Harvard."
