Jake is an engineer, designer, and amateur chef who worked as a mechanical engineer before entering the Innovation Design Engineering program. His intention for entering this program was to sharpen his product design skills, but what he learned throughout his studies is that good design doesn’t always require building physical products.
The constraints presented by the pandemic forced him out of a workshop and out of his comfort zone, where he became more familiarized with digital products and services. He believes that design is a means to accessibility, and so his interest and many of his projects are centered around healthcare and education.
When he is not glued to a computer screen you can find him in the kitchen or cycling around the city.
He is also participating in the EIT Health Wild Card Accelerator as a co-founder of BrightSide, a company focused on developing devices that assist chronic pain patients communicate their state to their loved ones.
