Hogan News: Students Speak to Jason Tom

It was a pleasure to hear from Jason Tom who is truly a passionate musician at heart. He spoke to us about his journey, career, and showed us that passion can take us far in life.

Growing up, one would think you could not make a living from a hobby like beatboxing. Jason proves it is possible. He created his own style of beatboxing, traveled around the world, won poetry slams and other competitions, and is known as one of the top beatboxers in the world. Jason is an excellent example of pursuing your dreams. An advice I took to heart is to "know that with everything you do, there is no accident... everything happens for a reason". Successful individuals are able to learn from their mistakes, do not give up and have goals th…

Recap of what has been going on. Growing up I always loved visuals that told a story, whether it'd be through illustrations, film or photographs. So here are photos courtesy of Joe Marquez (the Smoking Camera):

Global Dance Cafe 6 at Oceans 808 (in preparation for the 2010 PUJA Dance Concert: Love Letters on June 5th & 6th) was a lot of fun.... big ups to Willow Chang for inspiring me to utilize more of my "dance." My hat tips off to the late Michael Jackson, Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire. They're my top song and dance heroes. Here was some preliminary fun I had with a pre-performance photoshoot (more at jasontom.com/photos):

Then came performance time that brought the roof down (more at jasontom.com/photos).

Then I brought up my guest MC artist friend Faioso to p…

Jason Tom ISA LA

Two videos courtesy of Crispee Productions while I was at the 2009 International Secret Angeles Los Angeles (2009 ISA LA) Concert at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse produced by Wong Fu Productions and the Far East Movement. My ISA San Francisco and Los Angeles experiences were memorable for 2009. After the concert I joined the Far East Movement, Wong Fu Productions, Quest Crew, Kevjumba, and the ISA LA crew for dinner.

Here I am performing a freestyle with a couple of crow calls and Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean."

I performed an a cappella and acoustic version of, "Listen Carefully," an original beatbox song I wrote and composed in 2007.

AsianAve.com's Member of the Month!

June 16, 2008 at 03:25PM

Who here remembers AsianAvenue.com? Well, here is some background information before I start my entry, Community Connect (AsianAvenue.com's parent company that also launched BlackPlanet.com, MiGente.com, GLEE.com, and FaithBase.com) closed AsianAvenue.com, and gave birth to AsianAve.com. In other words they subtracted the "nue" from AsianAvenue.com and added a new AsianAve.com with a fresh infrastructure. Still with me here? Some new features that were not in the old site include blogs, unlimited photo uploads, video uploads, groups, style, rate me, music profiles, comments, and more. Old features that remain are chatrooms, forums, news, member find, notes, guestbook, friends list, flirt, MOTD, etc.

Anyway, this year on June 3rd I became AsianAve.com's featured Member…

Yoo! my brother from another MOUTHer!!
That's fresh logo as you are! Come down Japan and let's rock together!!

Aloha, Jason!!! So glad we connected. Great picture of you & Pastor Clint!

Keep spreading God's Word as you live your life.

God bless!

Super talented and what an awesome video!!!!! Blessings on this journey of yours where I hope you can inspire the younger generations with a twist of our culture and modern hip hop genre. This sure brings back childhood memories of mine taking ukulele lessons at roy sakuma in kaimuki and dancing for 24/7 danceforce ... the good old days hehehe!!!! Aloha :)

I like all of them, but as a personal brand the one done by the media company with the outline and Hawaii's Human Beatbox is my favorite. Tom Thum is so dope in everything he does but in this instance, as far as a brand logo, I like the last one on the post. Maybe mess with colors etc. have an aloha version maybe.

Love the Ton Thum logo...Dope!

So dope, all of it! :D

I really appreciate this logo and it has flavor and style!

I think ur logo great jason and cool also u shouldnt change that way its great

Aloha Jason,

Thank you for your kind words, this is a unique and awesome video, keep inspiring others to do well in their life, keep up with the beatboxing, it takes a lot of practice and dedicatication towards your goals what you want to achieve in life, I think you found it! Keep spreading the positive vibes it’s nice in meeting a new friends Aloha!

Awesome! So high energy and amazing spirit! Keep spreading your talents and positive vibes, God knows we need more love, laughter and aloha in this world!

Love your heroes :D Some of them at are mine too. Amazing journey and talent. But more importantly, you have a beautiful Soul and spirit Jason, and it's really nice to meet people like you :)

You are a man of many talents! A true renaissance man.
Every time I hear a gecko in my house, I feel a sense of peace. Gecko Man!

That is such a neat story and cool creation to use from it! I believe Jason Tom becomes more and more creative because he has an audience to speak to. Keep expressing JT! We're absorbing you!!

I am glad you are putting your dreams into reality! The only way to progress is to always push forward. Every step will lead you to your destination. I am wondering what your plans are for this logo? Honest opinion, visually, the color of him is a little washed out. Depending on how you brand this and use it, people may not understand what this is, but is an amazing vector and captures your personality and essence. I can't wait to see where this takes you!

I really like the concept and the drawing! Really moves the reader
