Hey, what’s the B for?

A lot of people* have asked me what the “B” in “Jason B Standing” stands for. Another way to phrase it is “What’s your middle name?”, however I suppose in this case because I’ve proffered the “B” to them in the introduction it feels a lot less nosey to ask. …

Who the hell is Jason B. Standing?

Since throwing caution to the wind and moving from Adelaide to London in 2004, Jason has totally embraced his passions of travelling, going to live music & comedy gigs, appreciating ludicrously tasty whisky, and t-shirts. Mmmmm… t-shirts…

Professionally he’s in the software development business, and occupies his spare time doing pretty much anything that comes up in conversation & looks interesting.  He is really impressed by people who do science (properly).
