Originally from country Victoria, Jacob spent a couple of years in Melbourne playing in bands before moving to Sydney to study at the Actor’s Centre Australia. Alongside his training, Jacob has had a chance to dip his toe into the industry with the lead role in a Tropfest finalist film in 2013 “Great Day”, a lead in a pilot co-staring Darren Gilshenan and he also played Paul Danzinger in Griffin Theatre Company and Pantsguys co-production of “On The Shore of The Wide World” directed by Anthony Skuse.
His time at the Actor's Centre Australia has been an invaluable chance to hone his skills in all areas. Highlights include “Twelfth Night” directed by George Ogilvie, “The Cherry Orchard” with Anthony Skuse and the American scene work production “What Are You Looking At?!?” directed by Adam Cook.
