Jason Adam Griffith

Developer Biography

Jason Adam Griffith (born November 26, 1980; New York, United States) is an American voice artist. He has worked for 4Kids Entertainment, NYAV Post and DuArt for properties that include the Yu-Gi-Oh!, Slayers, Marvel, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchises.

Jason is best known as Sonic and Shadow the Hedgehog, from the Sonic The Hedgehog video games series. He also voiced Sonic and Shadow in the anime Sonic X prior to his work in the games. Most fans initially disliked the voices he gave for the characters in the anime, as they did not fit with either character's personality.

He also did the voice of Usopp from 4Kids' English version of One Piece. Many people can tell it was Jason doing Usopp's voice, as it sounded just like Sonic, only crazier. Jet the Hawk, another Sonic character Jason voices, is portrayed in a similar fashion.

Jason is also credited asJ. Griff, DJ Tanner and Adam Caroleson, the latter being a combination of his middle name (Adam) and his mother's first name (Carol).
