Jake, a Michigan native, received his bachelor's degree in Accounting from the University of Michigan before moving to Indiana to attend the Indiana University McKinney School of Law. During law school, Jake focused on Taxation and interned at the Indiana Department of Revenue before joining the Indiana Economic Development Corporation in his final year.
Since relocating to Carmel in 2015, Jake has been actively involved in helping Hoosier Democrats in the suburbs. He served two terms on the executive committee for the Carmel Democratic Club, volunteered as campaign Treasurer for a State Senate race, and raised money for the Hamilton County Democratic Party.
As a candidate for City Council, Jake aims to bring Hoosier common sense back to Carmel's government. If elected, he plans to prioritize fiscal transparency, smarter development practices, green initiatives, and resident voices over poorly planned development projects.
