As Chief Operating Officer of Indigenous Media, Jake manages the day-to-day operations of the company and oversees original content development for digital and emerging platforms as well as marketing, partnerships and distribution strategy. He recently conceived and produced “Sickhouse,” the first of its kind, real-time Snapchat feature film which amassed more than 100 million total views over the course of five days and is now available on Vimeo, BitTorrent and Fullscreen.

In his previous role as Chief Operating Officer of WIGS, he oversaw marketing and content development and helped to pioneer their multiplatform distribution strategy. The channel’s most popular series “Blue,” originally commissioned in the US as a three-season, short form series, had successful runs on Hulu, Lifetime in the UK and most recently on the Lifetime Movie Network (LMN) as “Blue: A Secret Life.”

Jake has always been an early adopter in the digital content space, producing 100s of hours of viral web content, music videos, linear and digital series as well as films that have generated hundreds of millions of impressions for companies such as Warner Brothers, FOX and the Sundance Film Festival.
