jake-websiteHome schooled, the oldest of 10 kids, and married to an American girl raised in Thailand. Conversations are never dull!

Currently working as a writer and photographer in Europe, I’ve done a  bit of everything – from cleaning carpets to roofing houses… I once listened to Paradise Lost while working in a crawlspace for eight hours. Replacing old insulation was never more epic!

I love stories that surprise me, and I hope my stories inspire and surprise you in the ways they did me. If so, I’ve succeeded.

Follow the progress of the book on Facebook, check out the completed movie screenplay, and check out the BLOG for updates!



I love to connect with others who are similarly-inspired!
Feel free to send me a message!
