Here's a bit of my story...
Jason Joyce, M.B.A.
Jason is a writer, designer, professional event planner and idea arranger in New York City who has made it a lifelong mission to never grow boring. Originally from Wyoming, Jason is the co-founder and CEO of the lifestyle clothing company Weekend Society, plays keys in The Rubbish Zoo, and loves ghost stories around the campfire.
Currently, Jason lectures and works as an Assistant Director at Columbia University where he is responsible for the holistic and professional development of graduate students. He also serves a Sustainability Consultant and Strategic Project Manager at EFFECT Partners, where he helps brands and clients design and deliver social change initiatives that have a positive impact on both the world and bottom line.
In his previous role at Loyola Marymount University (LMU), Jason was responsible for the advisement of the Associated Students (ASLMU), as well as Athletics and special population programming. Jason oversaw and advanced the effectiveness of all campus-wide programming, including the direction of large-scale concerts and other events. He was proud to be the advisor on the coaching staff for both the Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse teams. Previous to his position at LMU, Jason worked as the keyboardist and manager in an indie rock band called The Rubbish Zoo.
Jason earned his B.A. in Business Administration & Honors Program with a minor in Creative Writing from the University of Wyoming in 2009. He graduated with a double-emphasis Masters of Business Administration (M.B.A.) from LMU in Spring 2016.

Outside of the classroom, Jason speaks, presents, and consults on creative strategy, team-building and leadership skills training and development.
In his free time, Jason plays in a number of competitive, post-collegiate football and basketball leagues (where he has been recruited from to play semi-pro football), runs half marathons, and writes short stories, poetry and short films.
