Biography

Hey! My name is Jake, and I am a rising senior at the college (not sure when that happened). I live in Kirkland House, pursuing a joint-concentration in Art, Film, Visual Studies (Film track) and Neuroscience. If you are wondering how in the world those two combine, you are not alone and I’d be happy to tell you more because I’m obsessed with it. In between classes, I’m either telling stories with my friends, at Dunkin’, or with my A Cappella group the Harvard LowKeys. I also dance for Eleganza (a campus dance/fashion show), and like to make film projects whenever I can! Being a first generation college student, the transition to Harvard was both incredible and terrifying, so one of my favorite parts of college is talking to prospective students through working in Admissions! I sure had a ridiculous amount of questions (and sometimes, still do). So, I’m excited to hear from you! Please feel free to reach out with any questions about my experience or Harvard in general.
