About Me

Hey there! You might be here because I've handed you a chapstick business card or because we've connected in some way.


I currently lead the change management and training efforts for a startup and guide companies through large-scale software implementations.

About me

I work in the Denver tech startup scene. Most people know me as Jake from SyncHR. I am the Senior Change Management Consultant for a startup 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 Southern New Hampshire University online. Around the same time, I landed a job at my first tech startup. 

I began an exciting career in change management. Within two and a half years, I was promoted and had redesigned how we approach change management with our customers. I currently guide our customers through the people-aspect of complex software implementations.

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!
