Jacob is a native of the Pacific Northwest who grew up skiing and hiking on and around Mount Hood. After graduating from college he spent five years doing computer aided drafting in a variety of disciplines and six years performing title and real estate research before coming to work at Clarke Balcom Law, where he works on mortgage issues and bankruptcy matters.
Outside of work his hobbies have varied widely, from skiing to dancing and teaching salsa, writing short stories, drawing, cooking and most recently rock climbing. Jacob was an associate producer of the independent World War II film “Pathfinders—In the Company of Strangers,” which has been released in both the U.S. and England and is currently available on DVD.
He enjoys movies, a wide variety of music, good food, spending time with friends and family, and rock climbing with his wife and daughter.
