the years, Jake has worked in several jobs while going to night school at Quincy
College (where I met my lovely wife Sarah), and Emerson studying Communication.
He has always hoped that some day he would get a chance to work in the broadcasting
industry. During his schooling, he had the opportunity to complete broadcasting
classes at WATD in Plymouth and work at a local greyhound race track calling the
races. After graduating from Emerson, he worked as the technical director of a
community based show at Quincy access television.
