A Missouri native, Jacob discovered his passion for hair and makeup at his family's salon, where he learned about beauty at a young age. Growing up among hair stylists and makeup artists, Jacob learned classical styles and spent his youth developing his own style of work.
Jacob took his passion and drive to the University of Kansas and perfected his skills while interning for MAC Cosmetics. His internship led to an influential career with MAC Cosmetics in NYC where he began working in education, artistry and on their Fashion Week teams in New York, Paris and Milan. After leaving MAC, Jacob became a global educator for Sunday Riley, Christian Dior and Living Proof, where he shared his experiences and passions with other artists all over the world.
Jacob resides in New York City and continues to be inspired by his network of peers, the world around him and loves to create with other like-minded artists.
