Hello visitor. I'm Jacob. I'll keep this short and sweet.

Born in Texas. Landed in California. I'm restless, creative, and curious. I call myself an Art Director, but really, I'm just a problem solver. That's my instinct. I've been a designer, an artist, a strategist, a 'creative technologist,' an art director, and a business owner. I consider myself versatile and incredibly proactive.

I love to work, but I also love to get out and experience the world. Currently freelancing out of LA and trying to change the world with my side biz, Hubber, an airport based peer-to-peer car sharing company. Now open in LAX, coming soon to SFO, PDX, and SEA.

LOS ANGELES, CA
