Jacob was drawn to investigations because he wants people to receive just and fair treatment in their workplaces and schools. He hopes that, through his work, he can help ensure this happens.


Jacob was born in Sacramento. He has previously taught English and creative writing. He currently lives in Pittsburgh.

Outside the Office

In his free time, Jacob enjoys reading, writing poetry and singing karaoke. He is a fan of “The Simpsons” (specifically seasons 3 through 9) and the films of David Lynch.
