We had the good fortune of connecting with Jason Sensation and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jason, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My thought process behind starting my own business was to give back to the community, the youth, but more importantly create a legacy for myself in this vast world. To “Take A BREAK & FIT It In” is the key foundation to BREAKFIT!! People are too invested in living to work & not working to live.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
“My Art” is MOVEMENT of any kind. I started out as a ‘Street Performer’ in Santa Monica, California w/ a crew that Charles “Lil Buck” Riley & I created called NSK (New Styles Krew). Using my Bboy abilities to engage the public, we quickly realized dance not only influences other to dance as well, but we’ve inspired other art forms, motivated people of all ages & ethnicities and changed lives around the planet. My younger entertainer days is the key foundation towards how Jason Sensation became for the people & no longer for himself.
It wasn’t “EASY” transitioning for “Streets to Sets”. You’re no longer a performer for locals & tourist, but now you’re on camera as a “PROFESSIONAL” and taking directions for a overwhelming project, company/product and or FILM. The fear was incredible auditioning alone side people you seen on tv & other celebrities… it fueled me. Harsh lessons was taught to me from the start “in Hollywood your NAME & WORD is everything”… I wanted the world to know JASON SENSATION and everytime you see me, it’s gonna get SENSATIONAL.
YEARS later, I create a lifestyle brand called BREAKFIT… which is more then just dance & fitness, but to “take a BREAK & FIT it in” be it life, travel, family or even other hobbies. With 2020 developing the way it did, I feel like the world took a BREAK & FIT in what truly matters and that was LIFE!!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Ha, If you’re visiting & I’m the tour guide for the week, you’re in luck. SoCal has about everything just a hop skip away. Mind you is 2021 and we’re in a new world now, but we can still live it up with things springing back to normal.
Each morning we’ll cruise a different sector of Southern California stopping off at any mom & pop establishment for a soulful breakfast and supporting small business, site seeing the afternoon, Venice, Malibu, Santa Monica, Burbank, Calabasas, Beverly Hills lol heck fuel & even cruise down to San Diego!! Ha, might even take you to the local race track & Drift my cars. Night life is where it’s turn up, be it HOLLYWEIRD, WeHo or Long Beach…. We doing it.
With there’s up, there’s down… skid row, downtown L.A. at night, etc…. get the full vibe.
There’s lots to do here, lol even I have done, ate, explored it all.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
