Hi, I'm Jacob.
At my core, I'm a designer. I use tools like empathy, clarity and simplicity to solve human problems and create more beautiful experiences.
Professionally, I'm the Director of Digital Strategy at MESH, where I get to help established brands and scrappy startups alike, design beautiful experiences IRL and across the web.
Though it’s often hard to distinguish my work from my play, on my “off-hours” I've authored a couple of books, backpacked across the world, served on a few boards, spoken at a number of creative conferences around the world, written 300+ blog posts on simple, creative living, built a little side project on minimalism, won awards for my family's quirky annual Christmas Cards, and co-created a podcast network with a social mission. Oh, and I trained in the art of salsa dancing!
