About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To engage with passionate people.

ABOUT ME

Hi,
I'm Jake from Australia. I find great pleasure in art of all kinds, particularly music. Food and wine too. I like having adventure and taking risks. I find new experiences very exciting. When I'm relaxing I like to read or have a beer or two. I'm a sound engineer and am involved in recording and mixing local bands. I love going out to see live music. I'm an easy going guy and tend to get on well with most people.

PHILOSOPHY

"You gotta do watcha wanna, 'cause watcha wanna is good!"
