 You’d be hard-pressed to find someone more passionate not just about the outdoor industry, but about doing important work both behind and away from a laptop screen that benefits all and just generally putting good out into the universe.

Jake is a creative spirit at heart and has more content ideas than most managers (myself included) know what to do with. Any company looking to spark a creative fire within their team would be lucky to have Jake.

Our team put 10 military veterans on a river trip with 10 Outdoor Industry professionals to jumpstart a network to get interested Vets an entrée into our Industry. In our short time together, Jake impressed me with his work ethic, creativity, calm presence, but mostly with his authenticity and kindness.

I walked away from our work together with a sense of achievement – Jake helped lead us to tackle a problem with a novel approach to complete success – but more importantly, I now have in Jake a friend I can trust!

I’ve known Jake since he was in school as a Graphic Design major, and he worked for me several times as an assistant photographer. He was talented and a hard worker, and I was struck by his infectious positivity.

Since then I’ve had the pleasure of working with him professionally and knowing him as a friend. He has a true passion for the outdoors, an unshakable work ethic, and most importantly he is a natural leader, motivating and lifting up those around him to do their best work.
