Hi, my name is Jake.
I direct plays about who we are and where we are, and what those questions have to do with each other. I direct things that are fun, and weird, and about the brutal irreconcilabilities of being alive.
I like to lead rooms with shared vision and shared power. I value hierarchy in artmaking, but mostly because I like what happens when it's subverted.
