Who is This Jake Anyway?

Aside from our jaunty name, we are known for our innovative, integrated approach to digital marketing. We are a group of strategists, artists and engineers working together to deliver creative solutions that build business.

Visit Our Studio

Our studio is located at 3214 O Street, NW, just blocks from Georgetown University. Like our design aesthetic, we prefer modern interiors -– clean, bright and functional. Large whiteboards for brainstorming, a dedicated conference area for client meetings and a private backyard garden ensure that our team has enough creative space to come up with inspired ideas.

In my own words...
Fun Fact

I once photographed the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet, Celebrity Chef Spike Mehdelsohn and George W. Bush all in the same month.

Burning Desire

To open a summer camp for kids out in the country.

My Other Life

Most Saturdays and Sundays you can find me at Eastern Market on Capitol Hill exhibiting my crazy collection of original photography.

Weirdest Hobby

Frisbee Golf. There are over 4,000 courses in the world, and I'm on a mission to play as many as possible.

Claim to Fame

I started photographing politically-minded Star Wars Lego Art on a whim, and now my remixes of Stormtroopers as Republicans and Democrats are my biggest sellers. Only in D.C.!
