Hey guys! My name is Jake.
I’m starting my senior year of college in fall 2015 and I’m studying Professional Communication and Emerging Media at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. My concentration is in applied journalism, and my applied field is public relations.
I’m extremely interested in alternative music and music culture. I love punk, pop-punk, hardcore, metalcore, ska, pop rock… pretty much anything. I play bass in a Wisconsin-based pop punk band called Pets With People Names, and I also act as manager and booking agent of said band.
The dream is to eventually work in the music industry, where I hope to own a label. I want to get started doing artist management or public relations for a record label, or writing for a music website/editorial of some sort.
I’m also interested in skateboarding, skate culture, super heroes, coffee, pizza and intelligent conversation.
I’ll have an online portfolio up on this here blog soon, so bear with me there. But until then, feel free to shoot me an email if you have any specific inquiries about anything.
Thanks and I hope you enjoy!
