History[edit]

Career[edit]

Jason Pohl joined Orange County Choppers as Senior Designer in early 2004. He started his career at Incredible Technologies, based in Arlington Heights, IL as an Artist/Animator of videogames, where he worked on a digital pinball prototype licensed by OCC and was responsible for the modelling and designing of all choppers featured in the game. Upon completion of the project, Paul Teutul Sr. was so impressed with his work, he approached Jason to join the team. Since joining OCC, Jason finds the most challenging part of his job to be taking two dimensional conceptual drawings and modelling and reshaping them into fully functional three dimensional parts.[2]
