Between 1972 and 1975 he received degrees from Merritt College in Oakland California and UC Berkeley. After graduation from UC Berkeley with a degree in Political Science, he won a position with the US Department of Energy against 2,400 applicants for four job openings.
Between 1976 and 1980 he was promoted from a GS7 entry level employee to a Mid Level GS12, obtained a "confidential security clearance" and became a Senior Contract Specialist. He negotiated many multi-million dollar government contracts with major contractors, including TRW, General Dynamics, and General Electric.

He is often contacted by national news organizations to comment on breaking stories.
Since January 1991, Mason has hosted a live call in radio program on a Southern California radio station. He recently took the program independent of the station and began to produce it himself. Mason forged ahead in this new field by producing, writing and researching the program. Press releases and personal appearances soon made him a sought after public speaker an lecturer.
His degree in Political Science from U.C. Berkeley, experience as a Congressional Aid, Federal Contract Specialist, teacher and entrepreneur give him a unique view of government and business.
