Jake has a passion for movies and media. As a kid he was fortunate enough to have a neighbor who owned a video store and would constantly borrow VHS screeners. He devoured all the 80’s movies and TV that he could and grew to have a deep affection for horror and kitsch. Him and his friends would make homemade movies as kids and screen them for the neighborhood. Jake focused on art history and film studies as an undergraduate at Sonoma State University and post-graduation moved onto an intensive digital film production program at The Berkeley Digital Film Institute in Berkeley, California, where he learned all the tools needed to make independent film. Since then Jake has been involved in various film and media projects, and had projects screened nationally and internationally. Jake has worn many hats ranging from directing music videos, commercial set design, lighting, and sound, to cinematography and acting. Digital Filmmaking has taken Jake all over California and as far as Tibet for projects.
