A native of the Pacific Northwest, Jake loves connecting with the inspirational natural surroundings that the region provides. He moved to Bellingham to study music and creative writing at WWU. After performing with the schools award winning improv team, The Upfront felt like the logical next step; a new arena in which to develop as a performer. He somehow maintains a delightfully precarious balance between improv, a full-time job, and playing around town in several bands. What he is inspired by is true inspiration. Authentic collaborative creation that comes from a universal place and speaks in more than one language. With this intrigue for the ethereal, he is thrilled to have the opportunity performing with the Upfront Mainstage cast!
