Hey, I'm Jacob!

Soon after high school, he joined the United States Marine Corps where he served as an Intelligence Specialist.

After he left the military, he moved back home and began studying filmmaking at Columbia College Chicago. He worked on over 50 productions, filling many different roles but he found a true passion for Assistant Directing.
