My name is Jacob, I'm an audio/visual producer and teacher on the East Coast of the USA. I have been self-employed since 2014 working both as a musician and photographer/cinematographer.
I have found so many uses with the tools to create your own music, shoot great video and take great photos. Starting a small business? You can create your own cinematic advertisement, company jingle and nail your Instagram feed. Just want to have fun and capture memories? Playing an instrument is the greatest hobby, and the perfect photo is timeless.
I attended Berklee College of Music in 2014 and began teaching multiple instruments in a local music studio. I then became an audio engineer at that same studio, eventually partnering with companies such as PreSonus and opening my own space in 2020. During this I was heavily engaged in cinema - filming commercials for businesses, music videos, and taking engagement/real estate shoots.
