Hi there! I'm Jake

  (AKA that guy in the photo here)  

As a New England native currently residing in San Francisco, I am still loyal to Dunkin Donuts, love the four seasons, and embrace being a disabled, loud, queer empath.

Born profoundly deaf, I am obsessed with accessibility #a11y and design. Disabled people motivate me to create true Universal Design experiences as a multidisciplinary designer. 

If I'm not making another coffee (cream and sugar, please) or exploring my neighborhood, I'm definitely on my couch knitting blankets like a 72 year old grandma who has zero filter while watching TV shows (like Gilmore Girls, crime documentaries, or RuPaul's Drag Race). 

I'm on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram – and a quick email away.
