Hello there,

My name is Jacob and I’ve been performing and creating media in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2011. 

I want to be the first to say... welcome to my portfolio. 

About me. I began competitive sports at the age of 8, taking up soccer & hockey in elementary school, wrestling in junior high school and the first half of high school. Sophomore year I moved to team gymnastics & junior year added cheerleading. As a senior, I competed and placed competitively on floor and vault at a state level. As a male tumbler, I helped catapult our cheerleading team to nationals.  My gymnastic friends and I would breakdance at the high school dances and outside of school make all different types of short films together.

I left my hometown of Chicago and joined the US Coast Guard at age 18. I will always be grateful for the discipline I learned in the services but because I didn’t join the majority of other members of the crew and take up a habit of drinking, I found myself with all sorts of free time on my hands. In my free time, I became scuba certified, learned the basic of graphic design, took up studying the technicalities of acting and filmmaking and finished 2 years of college before I separated from the Coast Guard.

The crash came when I was only 22 and still, in the military, I started suffering from chronic pain in my back, neck, armpit, and down my right arm. The pain would wake me in the night and over time restricted the mobility of my neck. To counter the intense inflammation in my body I regularly took 1600mg of ibuprofen in a 24 hour period, just so I could work through the day and sleep through the night. Knowing the pills I was taking were not a solution I took necessary steps to find a cure. When I was 23 I had surgery and a piece of my C7 was removed from my spine. This piece of my spine contained a bone growth that would have turned cancerous if not treated so quickly. Days after my surgery I was back to normal, and from that day forward I began looking for the source cause of my inflammation and a lifelong solution that would allow me to enjoy life in a state of optimal health. My research started right away and the answers I found will be available in my blog and one day a cookbook I hope to publish as an ebook very soon. 

I separated from the Coast Guard just before my 24th birthday, and after learning just a small amount about where my inflammation was coming from, I decided that moving to a place where I could earn a degree in Business, pursue the life of an artist, and become an actor, all while also gaining access to high quality locally farmed food.

In 2012 I started studying Business Management at San Francisco State University and with the open-minded people of California all around me it took no time at all to start dialing in my new holistic lifestyle. The lifestyle included regularly shopping at the farmer's markets, as well as learning and practicing basic yoga and meditation techniques. Much of my introduction to yoga and meditation came from attending transformational festivals but the impact those practices had on my mind and body was astounding and quickly turned into a routine.

My mind and body practices have completely changed in comparison to who I was in the Coast Guard. Today I  have more energy than ever, feel stronger than ever, and experience more peace and happiness than ever. With my conscious mind in the driver's seat, I have been able to master the Cyr Wheel and expand my performance and screen acting career.

These days while I'm traveling the world I offer workshops that educate others about mindfulness, and how to adopt a more active & holistic lifestyle.
