My name is Jason Robert Bolton. I am a 26 year old Christ follower. I am a graphic designer by day, and a husband and Super hero by night. I have been married to my high school sweet heart for 3 years. We have an English Bulldog named Daisy and own a condo in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
Lets go back a bit shall we? I graduated from Lincoln High School in the year 2000. While in school I dated the most beautiful athletic gal in the joint. The future Mrs. Bolton. I played baseball and hockey three of my four years and wish I could go back and play some more. While in high school I had two of the best friends anyone could ask for. Evan, who is now a recording engineer in Los Angeles and has mad music skills, and Todd who is a graphic designer in East Lansing and was also my team mate and founding father of our high school hockey team.
After graduation I went to Washtenaw Community College where I found that the only thing I could do with an associates degree in graphic design was sell it at a garage sale (this was a direct quote from one of my design teachers). So I decided it would be best to transfer to a more career promising institution because lets face it, graphic designers apart from being the coolest people you’ll ever meet don’t exactly swim in a vault of gold coins like Scrooge McDuck. So I applied and much to my astonishment was accepted to the College For Creative Studies (CCS) where I went through four years of earthly hell. In the end I must admit I am a better person for it. However I would have slapped anyone who told me that at the time.
After graduating in May of 2006, I got a pretty wicked awesome job as a designer at Eden Foods, an organic food company in Clinton, Michigan where me and the Mudpuppy do wicked awesome stuff, talk about music, movies, and occasionally design something.
Russ and I also attend NewSong Community Church in Tecumseh, Michigan. Well we don’t just attend our wives come too. They are both Sunday school teachers. I am a guitar player on the worship team/band Captured. Music has always been a passion of mine and what better way to use my talents than to praise God? I have found so much encouragement from my band mates. It is truly a blessing to be apart of that group. Those of you who are worship leaders know what I am talking about.
I am sure you all are wondering about the whole Superman thing. Well it’s pretty simple. I like Superman. Everything Superman. Everything about Superman. I have ever since I was very small. I have all the Superman movies, I have all the seasons of Smallville and I have more action figures, comics, and T-shirts than you can imagine. I know it’s sad but it’s the truth. If you think about it there are a lot of similarities between Superman and Jesus. Both were only sons sent to earth by their fathers to save earth from evil.
That’s about it. Feel free to ask any questions if there is something I missed. Make yourself at home.
