Jacob is a middle child of 5, born in 1998 to a 16 year old single mother in Farmer's Branch, Texas. He has been heavily passionate about music since 2nd grade. Freshman year of high school he took a photography class for his cinematography course and got more familiar with cameras and how they work and being able to project what he wanted from them, and also put more of his attention on photography and film making because he was just making home videos on a flip cam. During high school he was taking courses to build up his knowledge and gain more experience with cinematography because somewhere in middle school he decided that he wanted to be a screenwriter, director, musician and actor. He always wanted to see people do better, “we all can do better” and that's what he wants to show the world through these platforms he has chosen for his future. Throughout his life he has seen a lot of people waste their potential, potential that could've been used to be something better and the more people he can push to do more for themselves the better because he knows he is fulfilling his duty to this earth. He knows eventually he might even find more things that he loves doing, that's the best part about being young is that he still has so much room to grow and expand his talents.
