Jacob is an undergraduate student at the school of Arts, Technology and Emerging Communications at UT Dallas with a focus on product + graphic design and emerging technology.
Jacobs interest in product design flourished in high school when he founded a longboard company with his twin brother. The twin pair designed and built custom longboards out of their garage for over 3 years. Over these years Jacob designed everything from the production pipeline to the website.
