Hi, I'm Jacob.
I studied Computer Science and Political Science at Yale, and I'm currently the Policy & Public Affairs Coordinator at the Internet Commission.
Some cool things I've done:
Trafficked and analyzed digital ads for Democrats and progressive groups with Clarify
Ran polls across the country for progressive candidates and groups with Change Research
Wrote a thesis exploring the history and future of American employment guarantees, and another digging into digital Fourth Amendment issues—let me know if you'd like to read either!
Spent a summer in Yosemite, bussing tables at Priest Station and roaming around the Sierras
Served as a TA at Yale's School of Management, teaching MBA students about software development
Worked on MANY, a project for the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale redefining the relationship between displaced people and their hosts
Appeared on America’s Greatest Makers (though I dispute the title)
