I've spent most of my life telling the stories of others. This is my story. My name is Jake. I grew up in South Omaha, just a stone's throw away from the stockyards. I work full time in the communications field while I finish up my bachelors degree in Broadcast Journalism. I have a passion for great writing, music that inspires, minds that are creative, and people with intelligent attitudes. On my music playlist you'll find everything from the Temptations and Marvin Gaye to Stevie Nicks, Carole King, Reba, Janet Jackson, Ja Rule, Drake, Justin Timberlake, John Legend, Alicia Keys and Sam Smith. I have an eclectic taste in music, fine arts, poetry and the written word. If I wasn't working in the communications field, I would probably pursue a career as a youth counselor, because I'm a good listener. My friends would tell you that I'm a charismatic person, a leader not a follower, a caring and genuine guy. If you bring me mac and cheese, I will love you forever lol that's my favorite meal! Oh and chocolate milk too! Lol if you'd like to know more just ask.
