Jason Cutinella 

Founder & CEO

NMG Network

Jason Cutinella is Founder and CEO of NMG Network. After launching his career at McCann Erickson Worldwide as a media buyer for the Sony Pictures account and then transitioning to working on the client side of Sony Music International in New York City, Jason relocated to Hawai'i in 2004 to pursue a master’s degree in communications from Hawaii Pacific University.
With a vision to transform the way that content is created and distributed in Hawai‘i and beyond, Jason founded NMG in 2009 in order to connect travelers and sophisticated urbanites to authentic experiences. To expand from print into digital content and reach new markets, Jason spearheaded the acquisition of Visitor Video Inc., Hawai‘i’s leading visitor industry video distribution company, to create NMG Network and enrich the company’s diverse storytelling capabilities.

 

In addition to his role leading NMG, Jason has served as Fundraising Chair of the Executive Board of Directors for the American Advertising Federation (AAF Hawaii) and currently sits on the Board of Directors of the Honolulu International Film Festival (HIFF), ‘Ohina Short Film Festival', and serves on the American Heart Association fundraising committee.
Following his passions for entrepreneurship and building transformative brands, Jason also co-founded consumer wellness startup O2TODAY, designer of the world’s first total protection air pollution and travel mask, with the goal of helping millions breathe better and live longer. In his spare time, Jason focuses on building his wine business with his childhood friends.
When Jason is not driving his business pursuits, he can be found rooting for the US National team at World Cup outings with friends, searching to find the best park bench to relax, catching his thoughts and dreaming big! And exploring his newfound love for snowboarding!

Quick Facts

Something ILC attendees would never guess about you:
That I used to eat Sour Patch Kids for breakfast, lunch and dinner 3 days a week. Also, that I never tried a cup of coffee in my life! 

Favorite place to stay when traveling:
Depends on my type of travel, if I'm going to the World Cup or exploring a new place. I always stay at a boutique/indie hotel in the heart of the city. If I'm trying to slow my brain down, I search out a resort around any sort of water. 

MUST-have travel item:
A hoodie

A mix of Adam Sandler (Uncut Gems Adam Sandler) or  Eric "E" Murphy from Entourage.
