About me

I work in the Denver tech startup scene.  Most people know me as Jake from SyncHR.  I am the Sr. Change Management Consultant for a company that is revolutionizing the way businesses manage their people.

A few years ago I discovered mindfulness and it changed the course of my life.  I learned how to live in the moment and recognize when those small, subtle, signs try to pull you in the right direction.  Not long after, I began my Masters in Industrial Organizational Psychology at SNHU, online.  Around the same time, I landed a job at my first tech startup. 

I began an exciting career in change management.  Ironically, change management was exactly what I was studying in my degree.  The thing is, learning on the job was the best experience I could have asked for.  Within two and a half years I was promoted and had redesigned the way we approached change management with our customers.

People are my ultimate curiosity.  I enjoy studying why people do the things they do and what makes them tick.  My ultimate goal in life, is to help individuals and organizations run happily and efficiently.  

I graduated with my masters in March of 2019.  If you would like to connect, please send me an email below.  

Thanks for stopping by,
