Contact Jason

Jason has more than twenty five years of experience in the construction and real estate industries. It all began when working for his father’s home improvement company at age 13. There, he first learned the true meaning of hard work, self-motivation, and dedication to high quality client service. At 21, Jason graduated with a degree in Finance and Marketing from the University of Maryland. He was also a Founding Father of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity at UMD. After graduating, he spent seven years as a Project Manager for Ryan Homes and a small general contracting firm in Baltimore City. With those companies, he learned essential customer relations and construction project management skills. Today he brings those skills to the executive team at UrbanBuilt.

In 2012, Jason was selected to serve on the Better Business Bureau Board of Directors. He served for three years, both as a director and as a member of the finance committee. In 2018, he wanted to take his community service to another level, so he joined the Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company as a volunteer firefighter.

Jason’s finance, management, client relations and marketing skills have helped the UrbanBuilt family of companies to build strong business relationships. His commitment to community service and family has strengthened the values of the company. “Success comes with a lot of hard work, a little bit of luck and the ability to pick yourself back up when you get knocked down.”

Dreamworks also ventured into real estate, investing in several homes which he renovated for profitable sales. In 2008, Dave partnered with Jason Watts to form the executive team of a new general contracting company, UrbanBuilt. Dave’s vision for UrbanBuilt was simple – provide clients with high-end products and services, and stand behind the results. Dave brought his first-hand experience in renovations and investing to the new company, along with valuable tools, equipment, job site expertise and a loyal client list.
