Meet videographer and drone obsessed, Jacob. When he’s not outside exploring the globe with his drone, you can usually find him doing what he does best... oh wait, nope, you’ll usually find him with his drone.

WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO THESE DAYS?

I LOVE movies.

Usually what I listen to reflects what content I enjoyed watching lately, the latest has been “the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” and “Stranger Things” soundtracks.

IF YOU COULD BE SURROUNDED BY A ROOMFUL OF ONLY ONE BREED OF PUPPY, WHICH BREED WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

If I had my choice, I would choose Velociraptors. If my wife had her way, our home would be a puppy shelter full of Cockapoo’s, Bernidoodles, Golden Retreiver’s, French Bulldogs… shall I continue?

WHAT DO YOU GO DO WHEN YOU CLOSE YOUR LAPTOP?

One could say that your brain is a computer. So when I close my eyelids, it’s usually only for 300 milliseconds at a time. That, or I am sleeping.

Okay, okay, fine. I’m an avid sci-fi movie watcher, and I am always trying to find a hidden treasure… and still fly my drone.

WHAT DOES CREATING MEAN TO YOU?

It’s about telling a story, not just hitting record on a camera. To me it’s about finding what is unique about our subject and sharing it through a story.

PLEASE SHARE ONE USELESS FACT ABOUT YOURSELF THAT WE BARELY CARE TO KNOW BUT PEOPLE CAN USE AS AN ICEBREAKER ON AN AWKWARD BLIND CONFERENCE CALL:

I carry an old Monopoly “get out of jail free” card in my wallet at all times. I’m just waiting for the day I can finally use it to *hopefully* humor my way out of a speeding ticket.
