Jake has been acting and entertaining as a hobby all throughout his life. When he wanted to pursue acting full-time his parents said, "Hang on a minute there boy! Go get your College Degree™ first!" And so with his degree in hand he returned to Los Angeles to take the acting world by storm!
He wasn't wasting all of his time "learning" while at college. Jake produced and stared in several short films during his time, one of which landed him an internship at Team One Advertising in Los Angeles and another won the Audience Award at the Northern Arizona 73-Hour Film Festival (as the only non-film major as well!).
Since his return to Los Angeles he has been studying at Anthony Meindl's Actors Workshop and has most recently participated in their Summer Comedy Showcase.
