"Jacob is the kind of authentic person you feel lucky to know, because he is considerate enough to really listen and brave enough to relay what he has observed."
"Jacob has a wildly creative mind, a kind, empathic demeanor, and a mid-western sobriety. The total package."
"Jacob thoughtfully observes people and surroundings, and contributes kindness, art, and sincerity generously back to the world."
"Jacob is a guy who will let you crash at his house any day or night... as long as you can sleep through the dance party going on in the living room. He will also make sure you have plenty of laughs, fluids, and food before bed."
"Jacob is a man with a plan. I don't know what that is exactly yet, but I think he does, and I'm really excited to find out."
"Jacob is the type of person you feel comfortable opening up to, because he is trustworthy."
- Jim Haverty
"I have no idea what Jacob will think up next but I'm going to follow him and find out"
As a storybuilder, I help organizations and individuals build communications and outreach materials (through writing, visuals, and maps) to better tell their stories.
I have experience in federal, private, and nonprofit sectors and a specialty with building stories around places. Through the years I have been fortunate enough to work with some amazing individuals and organizations including National Park Service, U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, University of Nebraska, and the Department of the Interior.
