About



BIO:

Jacob is currently a Creative Director at Veritas, where he has been instrumental in revitalizing the brand’s image over the past few years. Additionally, he played a key role in developing the brand look & feel for Veritas’ latest product offering, Alta.

Prior, he was brought in to collaborate with various teams at Meta, including Oculus, Facebook AR, WhatsApp, and Internal Comms, to develop exclusive video content.

With a background in traditional filmmaking, and extensive hands-on marketing experience, Jacob excels in bridging disciplines to tackle creative challenges, storytelling, and overseeing all aspects of production. Notably, serving as a catalyst for integrating digital and traditional teams at prior agencies such as H&L, Attik, Publicis, and FCB.

He enjoys growing departments, mentoring teams, and crafting engaging marketing campaigns with some levity.

His client portfolio spans diverse industries, including tech, finance, automotive, food & beverage, and entertainment.

When Jacob isn’t working on some obscure side project, he has been spending time with the Surfrider Foundation to help clean up San Francisco beaches, and working on his mediocre single-panel comic strip (that he finds particularly amusing).
