“Working remotely with Jake was a pleasure and you’d never know we were thousands of miles apart, in different time zones. He’s an excellent communicator who is truly collaborative when crafting story. If you are looking for a hardworking and thoughtful editor, with especially great instincts for humour, he’s your guy.

“…I very much appreciate your excellent work. Great ideas, great eye and maintenance free. Often when people are spectacular at what they do people forget to thank them because their genius is taken for granted. Not so. Thank you.”
