Jason Pugatch has been working with the Young Storytellers Foundation since he came to Los Angeles nearly 7 years ago. He still mentors students in dramatic writing, while also acting as Associate Director of the organization. He is also a writer and actor, and is the author of Starting your Career as an Actor, which has received high praise for its candid look at the acting business. He has also written the feature film Coach, starring Hugh Dancy, Liane Balaban, and Benjamin Walker. As an actor you might have seen him on Law & Order, Numbers, Medium, Lincoln Heights, or hawking a number of products, services, and breakfast sandwiches between such shows. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, daughter, and various stray (now rescued) animals.
