Jason Mayo


Jason is a Partner and the Managing Director of Bonfire. Prior to joining Bonfire he was the Managing Director and Partner of the award winning NYC Digital Media Studio, Click 3X. Since joining Click 3X in 2001, he had helped grow the studio from a 20 person VFX boutique to a fully integrated digital production company staffed with over 75 full time employees, including designers, 2D and 3D animators, live action directors, producers, developers, editors, colorists and VFX artists. Jason is currently a contributing writer for the Forbes business council of NYC. In his free time he was the author of the award winning Dad blog, Out-Numbered. When he started Out-Numbered in 2008 it was one of the pioneer sites in the Dad Blogging space. The coolest thing that ever happened to him as a “Dad blogger” was when he was named to the “25 Dads Who Rock” list published by Working Mother, keeping company with Barak Obama, Jay-Z, David Beckham and Brad Pitt. Jason also published the children’s book, “Do Witches Make Fishes?” All of the profits from the book are donated to The Garden of Dreams Foundation.
