Hi, I’m Jason. I am a mid-level manager, adventurer and photographer. “Discipline Squared” is a personal mantra and this site is where I will share my experience, adventures and things I like, aka the jason ramynke experience.
No, this site isn’t the best way to build an online presence, but this isn’t about my “business” or building a huge presence online, or even trying to make money. I wanted to build a site that I can use as my public face and share cool shit. At one point I had a dozen web pages all dedicated to different facets of my life and that was just too much to coordinate. Influenced by Joe Rogan and the Joe Rogan Experience, I learned it is entirely possible to put a variety of things together if you are passionate about them. Well guess what, I have a few things I get excited about:
Management – Leadership
The set of skills that I get paid the most to use. Yes I have an education background (MBA) and lots of experience in managing. I have been a manager most of my working life and even have provided lectures on this topic at Eastern Washington University and Heritage University. I understand both the importance of operations AND leading people towards a common goal you will see lots of my thoughts and practices as well as interesting thoughts I find that are worthy of sharing. This information includes the science (management) and art (leadership) of business. You can see these articles here: Management and Leadership.
Another thing that I get serious about is my photography. A serious hobbyist or pro-am photographer I like to shoot people in a variety of genres. Of course my favorite genre is classic pinup, but I also shoot lots of other genres including boudoir, glamour, and even weddings. My work has been published in some national publications and websites including: Retro Lovely – Suicide Girls – The Modified Dolls Magazine and even the Yakima Herald. I am always looking for cool projects and if you have a great idea and WANT to shoot feel free to contact me with your project proposal/idea. Want to know a bit more about working with me? You can listen to some podcasts that I put together The Pinup Podcast or read along in the photography posts, you can find them here: What used to be Yakima Photo
Everyone should have 3 hobbies, One to make money (Leadership) – one to be creative with (Photography) and one that keeps you in shape (Adventure). My latest adventures include obstacle course racing, or adventure racing and also fishing. These activities give me a reason to stay in shape while making some great stories. You can follow along with my adventures here: Adventures
Battle Notes – the jason ramynke experience
Yes, I know that mixing all of these things together especially art and leadership isn’t the best way to build an online presence. I understand marketing, and establishing a niche and all that jazz, but this webpage is more for me than all of that. Consider the “Battle Notes” section a place where I will keep all of my thoughts and cool things that I have come across. “Battle Notes” because some day those might just get all put together and put into a book or two. you may never know what you will find in there.
