Hi there! I'm Jake. I am originally from Alton, IL. I currently reside in Gresham, Or. with my beautiful wife, daughter, son, and two dogs. I love the things that the Northwest has to offer: mountains, ocean, forests, city, music, art, and good beer!
I am a 2013 Media Arts & Animation graduate from the Art Institute of Portland. I am passionate about modeling and sculpting in all its forms, and I've focused my career in the digital world. I enjoy the flexibility that CG lends the artist to really explore detail and refine a piece of work. I love to solve puzzles and I feel like as a 3D artist, it is my job to figure out the best way to solve any issues that come my way.
I am named after my mom's favorite John Wayne movie, Big Jake. I enjoy Stephen King novels, brewing beer, Radiohead, and any movie with Tom Hanks. If any of that sounds good to you and you enjoy my work, drop me a line! Cheers!
