Community Support

Jake is a dabbler—a connoisseur of variety. Not quite committed to one thing and often forgetting about certain hobbies until in a moment of revelation he remembers, “Hey! I forgot I liked doing that!” Currently, he is orchestrating a series of video documentaries about artisans in Pittsburgh and just finished making a dining table with his girlfriend.

Jake likes working for a company whose intent is to connect everyone in the world one project at a time. Jake’s experience as a technician at Apple taught him that tech support is a philosophy—that a strong foundation and the ability to think on your feet are what counts when helping others. Jake is working with Brandon in harmony to further bridge the gap between form and function at Guru.
When not at work Jake likes to explore—he thinks there’s nothing more interesting than a place you’ve never been—no matter how small or seemingly insignificant it is. His most recent trip was a seven day stretch in Portland, Oregon where the most notable thing he saw was a man strolling downtown with his pet cat perched on his shoulder (it was a tie between that and the rocky, foggy Oregon Coast).

Fun Fact: Jake spent the day of his 18th birthday on a plane headed towards Kyoto, Japan. He spent an entire month in Kyoto on his own simply meandering and making friends.
