In 2019, his award winning short film Girls Night screened internationally in six countries and in Brooklyn at the SlimCinema Vertical Film Festival. Jacob’s comedy sketches have been seen on Above Average, Huffington Post, Manhattan Neighborhood Network, And CTV of Lane County, Oregon.

Amid the Covid-19 pandemic Jacob embarked on his first feature length documentary - I Hope You Remember Me - chronicling his mother’s descent into Early-Onset Alzheimer’s. He expects to wrap principal photography by April 2023 and is in the early stages of post-production. With his newfound love of documentary, Jacob aims to sew a continued thread of one-of-a-kind characters battling injustices larger than themselves. He strives to highlight the absurdity of human nature while simultaneously exposing the failings of modern society. Although Jacob fainted on stage in his fifth grade Christmas play, he did not let that deter his pursuit of the arts. When not making films, Jacob is feverishly on the hunt for the best pickle in town.
