My name's Jake. I'm an American student at Boston University studying journalism as well as environmental policy and analysis.
I'm originally from a suburb of Chicago, IL, but I go to school in Boston and my parents recently moved to Connecticut. To make things even more confusing, I have a brother who studies at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, and I'm studying in London until December 2013.
I love a good movie. Some of my favorites are Small Time Crooks, Drive and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. As far as TV goes, I'm a big fan of The Simpsons, Seinfeld, Community and (of course) Breaking Bad. I'm in the long process of reading Herman Melville's Moby Dick, and I'm loving every second of it.
I also like science, bears, mexican food, labrador retrievers, podcasts and beer of all kinds. Above all, I love a good story.
