To engage with passionate people.
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.
