A bourgeoning award winning natural history filmmaker and photographer, Jason Roehrig applies his passion for conservation and adventure to create media that not only tells a story, but ensnares, educates, and enthralls his audience.
After graduating with a degree in biology, Jason worked as a field biologist mapping and protecting endangered habitats, wetlands, and water systems as well as a nematologist at a major agricultural research firm. Once realizing that he could use his background to make a larger splash in conservation efforts in conjunction with media, Jason enrolled in the MFA program Science and Natural History Filmmaking at Montana State University. Since then, he has journeyed across continents and oceans, using his knowledge, skills, and adoration for the natural world to share all the wonders that are worth saving. From endangered toads in Death Valley to bioluminescent glowworms in the South Pacific, Jason believes that everything has a story to tell, and by sharing them, promotes their longevity.
Working alongside other very talented and passionate filmmakers, Jason has had the pleasure of working for the BBC Natural History Unit, National Geographic, PBS, History Channel and a wide range of other independent production companies based worldwide.
