Jake grew up (for the most part) in the Upper-Arkansas Valley of the Colorado Rockies. He’s always enjoyed rhyme and poetry, and started writing some in school, however, he’s only recently begun actually finishing poems and sharing them with others. Much of his work is inspired by rural life, and his ranching and rodeo experiences, but he occasionally ventures out into the realms of philosophy and theology. He loves the process of putting a story together within rhythm and rhyme, as well as performing his work live for an audience. He considers himself incredibly blessed to have opportunities to do what he loves. Jake now lives near Kearney, Nebraska with "the best wife on planet Earth" and an increasing number of energetic young children.
