Driving Instructor / Coach
My name is Jasson. My world is the road. Streets filled with chaos and anger, I remind myself that courtesy is all that separates us from the animals. Once, I was a dog trainer, a volunteer for homeless/families/animals; a hopeful man searching for a righteous cause. I’ve been driving around this city ticketless/crashless for 10 years like a road warrior. I continue to exist in this chaotic land called Los Angeles. A man now reduced to a single instinct, win!
