Born and raised in Houston, Jake spent much of his youth traversing the highways and backroads of Texas, developing a deep reverence for the state’s unique history, art, culture, food, people, and natural beauty. Jake unwinds outside the office by spending time outdoors with family and friends, finding a new recipe in the kitchen, and reading books written by his favorite author, the Texas literary master Leon Hale. Jake also enjoys working on his golf game (albeit a hopeless endeavor) and watching his favorite sports teams compete- the Houston Astros, Houston Rockets, and his beloved Texas A&M Aggies.
