About Me

I am an ambivert, so I can either be extroverted or introverted depending on the situation. I am respectful, energetic, and optimistic. I enjoy meeting, talking to, and developing relationships with people. I have a passion for learning anything. I enjoy challenges and the feeling of accomplishment. I work hard, I am very professional, and I am dedicated to doing my very best. I am very creative, energetic, and a self-motivated young man with an eagerness to learn and grow in experience and knowledge. I enjoy overcoming challenges and making improvements, always look for smarter, more efficient way to do things. I have a knack for utilizing technology in practical ways to improve results and encourage efficiency. I love new technology, and embrace it with a passion.

I have various interests, hobbies, and ministries that occupy my time and attention. I enjoy web and graphic design, using such tools as Adobe Photoshop, WordPress, and many others. I enjoy creative fiction writing, and am working on several e-books and books. I teach at church, I write a blog, and enjoy nature and landscape photography, as well as other outdoor things with family and friends like camping, kayaking, snowboarding, and hiking. I own a Subaru Crosstrek, which I love! I play guitar, mandolin, and a few other instruments. I love traveling and going on volunteer/mission trips. I tend to listen to audiobooks, podcasts, and music a lot. I appreciate my family and enjoy talking with friends and getting to know new people. I desire to first and foremost honor Jesus Christ with my life. The Holy Spirit is my power, my comfort, and my guide for life. I want to give him praise for his extraordinary grace upon my life.

Testimonial 1

“I wanted to hire the best and after looking at several other companies, I knew Tyler was the perfect guy for the job. He is a true professional. I wasn’t sure what I wanted, or what direction I wanted to go for my branding and Jacob was extremely patient and listened to the ideas and direction that I wanted to go.”

– Jacob Montra

Testimonial 2

“I cannot express how pleased we are with the level of professionalism and results – but also the service and intelligence to assist with making the best choices for the design of our logo. Jacob has truly exceeded all expectations and delivered a logo that is clean, eye-catching and above all a logo that captures all the elements we wished to portray (well before the agreed deadline I might add!). Jacob is an absolute pleasure to work with.”

Parker Holdings, Inc.

Testimonial 3

“Jacob absolutely nailed my website in his first draft, delivering a perfect result much faster than I expected! When I contacted Jacob about designing my website I was highly unorganized, lacking vision, ideas and actual content – possibly a ‘designer’s nightmare’! Jacob’s excellent communication skills and wealth of experience in dealing with small business clients meant he could quickly identify my needs and business image and provide much needed guidance with minimal fuss. I consider myself very lucky to have met Jacob and highly recommend him!”
