Foraging a career in the theater further honed his knack for a-typical fabrication and love for the dramatic. He learned to use unconventional materials in unique ways that leave audiences gasping at the original techniques and bold silhouettes. Jacob now makes unique pieces for performers all around the world. His pieces cannot always be clearly classified as costumes or props but who likes to color in the lines anyway? Forced to play outside from a very young age, Jacob's upbringing was anything but typical. With the help of his mother's love for sewing and his father's carpentry skills, Jacob learned to create his own worlds to fill his childhood days. Nothing compared to the possibilities of a hammer and nail and some fabric and thread.
