Hi, I’m Jacob.
In 2011, I launched Vibrant Content to provide modern websites, brand identities and communications services to change-making organizations. From a formative childhood trip to East Berlin (before the wall came down), to graduate studies on Mother Teresa, to documenting the impact of microfinance in South America, I have a life-long passion for global issues and social justice. Both non-profit and for-profit organizations have a role to play in improving life for those in the margins of our world.
Prior to launching Vibrant Content, I spent seven years working as a writer, graphic designer and communications strategist for organizations like the HELP research group at the University of British Columbia and Opportunity International Canada. I hold an undergraduate degree at William and Mary in Virginia, a Master’s degree in theology from Regent College (University of British Columbia) and studied web and graphic design at George Brown College in Toronto.
I have benefited greatly from the knowledge and experience in the Victoria WP Club and look forward to seeing it grow.
I am a big fan of WordPress and have been using it as my go-to website building platform since 2011.
I have lived in 11 different cities across the US, Canada and Europe but feel at home here in Victoria more than in any of them.
