When you have one chance to get the shot, one nanosecond to capture the reaction and make sure that it is in frame and in focus, Jake is your man. Whether it’s a documentary, narrative, or experiential content, Jake can be trusted to connect with his subjects, capture the truth of the moment, and tell even the biggest brand stories with unparalleled authenticity. Under his direction, actors become real people and real people are as comfortable as seasoned professionals. Jake is currently based in Toronto, shacking up with his life partner Biggie Smalls (French Bulldog, no relation). He did grow up stateside and we tempt him back across the border as often as we can. Peanut butter cups help.
