My story

I'm a video producer, TEDxWilmington organizer, student mentor, and engineer. My passion project is the non-profit I run, The 1% Engineer Society, but my business expertise is video production for brands. How did this happen? It's been a long journey :)

10 years ago I worked on a camera project with my Alma mater, The University of Delaware. That project created a chain reaction from drones, to a wedding video business, to a YouTube show for empowering young engineers, and now Jake Voorhees Productions.

Today I work as an engineer full time and film for brands on the side. The video business fuels the dream to scale my non-profit so I can help as many young engineers as possible. I've interviewed dozens of underrepresented engineers, and use my privledge to tell their stories. I've spoken for Society of Women Engineers, high schools, and recruited famous women engineers to speak at conferences. I love what I do.
