Jake has always been curious about learning how other people think. In college, he became fascinated by consumer behavior and its combination of scientific foundation and ever-changing implementation. He puts this passion in practice as an Insight Associate at Olson Zaltman. Before coming to Olson Zaltman, Jake completed internships with Sullivan, a brand consulting company, and Cornerstones, a housing non-profit. These opportunities provided him with a breadth of experience that he hopes will only continue to grow in the years to come.
Jake graduated from the University of Virginia with a Bachelor of Science in Commerce (Marketing and Management Concentrations) as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. A northern Virginia native, he is using food and football to make a deep connection with Pittsburgh. Outside of work, you can find him moonlighting as a movie buff, improving his trivia knowledge, or cheering on the Steelers.
