Hello, Define American!

My name is Jake and I'm a passionate storyteller, experienced project manager, and fierce advocate for systemic change. I believe in telling stories with purpose and amplifying the voices of traditionally marginalized identities in the process. These are the stories I choose to tell in my own filmmaking and the causes I champion in the places I work.

When I discovered Define American's Associate Director of Digital Storytelling posting, I immediately knew I had to apply. I strive to work at the intersection of advocacy, storytelling, and strategy in all that I do and that's why I am so excited to apply for this position. 

I currently lead marketing and communication strategy for a culture-focused diversity, equity, and inclusion consultancy. This experience has given me the opportunity to help inspire change within companies themselves, but I'm looking to return to the nonprofit world to utilize my masters degree in Digital Storytelling and experience as a project manager, producer, and storyteller in a new role that achieves measurable impact.

My experiences project managing large events, awareness campaigns, multi-channel marketing campaigns, and producing films, podcasts, webinars, and marketing video content will set me up for success in this role. Combined with my passion for advocacy, I know I would be a fervent team member and leader at Define American.
