Jason Pontillo '09

Jason Pontillo '09 is from Pembroke, NY. He started really "reading" with the Beats, particularly Kerouac, as a teenager -- like so many others have. To that end, he's tried in his writing to be flexible in form and meaning. He says, "whether I've succeeded or will succeed in the future remains to be seen." In his senior year, he worked as an intern at Starcherone Books in Buffalo, and after graduation continues working as an editorial assistant.
