Jason “The Hatchetman” Magee is known throughout the region as one of the early members of The Balladeers, an Adrian-based a cappella group that touted the merits of drug-free living through song. After a thorough high school education in music and small-town rebellion, Jason studied biological anthropology at the University of Michigan where he spent considerable time doing his own brand of CSI-style wizardry and staring at bones. Just prior to graduation, Jason endured a slightly traumatic lab incident involving a human skull and decided to continue his career in the less grisly world of business. Smartypants then went on to get an MBA at Michigan State then slogged through several executive roles at a variety of Southeastern Michigan tech companies before starting Human Element with Ben, his long-time brother-from-another-mother. Like Mr. Lorenz, Jason has dabbled in a number of companies’ technology including: Ryland Homes, Axciom, Realtor.com, Lincoln-Mercury, Guardian Industries and Siena Heights University, to name a few. Jason now spends his days writing historical fiction and laughing at the antics of his overtly defiant 6-year-old daughter.
