Jacob is a blogger, writer, and editor based in Charlotte, NC and sometimes Asheville, NC. He has spent time doing work in retail and customer service but has had the most fulfilling work experiences in areas around spirituality, religion, education, politics, and religion. With a diverse background in these areas including Marketing Director for a nonprofit coffee shop and member of Warren Wilson College’s Office of Spiritual Life, Jacob spends much of his time surrounded in conversations around what it means to be open-minded and to be faithful among the seemingly unending tragedy of today’s world.
Jacob has been awarded the Francis Pledger Hulme Memorial Award by the English Department of Warren Wilson College, a scholarship award presented to an outstanding English Major. In addition, Jacob has been published in QNotes, North Carolina’s top LGBT publication; literary magazines including Warren Wilson College’s The Peal; and he actively maintains his blog, mile/minute mind, which spends time focusing on activism and social justice from a faith-based perspective.
