Jake received his bachelor’s degree of journalism from the University of Wisconsin—Madison in May 2010. He is a photographer and multimedia journalist who seeks to produce work internationally that adds nuance and deeper insight to the oversimplified news briefs that dominate coverage of international issues. This interest brought him to the Pulitzer Center’s website and eventually to his current position.
Additionally, he works as the Media Director for Kibera Girls Soccer Academy, a grassroots, free, all-girls high school in the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya. He has traveled throughout East Africa and speaks Swahili conversationally.
His interests lie in the future of in-depth, critical and informed journalism and photography and creating a more globally-engaged community.
"We will illuminate dark places and, with a deep sense of responsibility, interpret these troubled times."
JOSEPH PULITZER III (1913-1993)
