Biography

Born in Long Beach, CA, Jake moved to New York in 2008 to escape California's chill vibes and see if he could cut it in New York's competitive and up-tempo atmosphere. Beginning his career in the business side of fashion, including stints with Steven Alan and Jack Spade, Jake escaped fashion to run the ship at BaseNYC, from budgets and timelines, to plumbing and studio remodels. Outside of Base, Jake enjoys hitting the links, soaking in the breadth of NY museums, making things, and going on any type of adventure that involves escaping the city to immerse himself in nature. Ten years outside of California, and try as he might, it is virtually impossible for Jake to hide his Southern California, surfer roots.
