Jake grew up in a small town called North Canoe. There is a South Canoe, but nobody ever talks about it. After high school, Jake portaged to the big city to make a man of himself and do “something” with his life.
With a portfolio filled with cool pencil drawings of skulls, he applied to the IDEA program at Capilano University. During his time there, Jake’s interest turned to big ideas and that “something” ended up being a career in advertising. Jake has worked as an art director at DDB, McCann Vancouver, and Camp Pacific, honing his craft and making a lot of good friends along the way.
