Jacob was born in Dayton Ohio and raised in Cincinnati. He received his BFA in Film and Television with a concentration in cinematography and camera operation from the Savannah College of Art and Design in May 2009. Over the past 4 and a half years Jacob has worked on an eclectic selection of films from multiple genres and formats. As of right now Jacob has a multitude of short films running the festival circuit, including “the Fakers”, “the Lorax” and “6 Feet Deeper”, some of which have won awards. When Jacob is not working on films he spends most of his time smoking a pipe in a dimly lit chamber studying ancient leather-bound texts by firelight.
