#MemberMonday: Jake Wolfe
For this week's #MemberMonday, we're introducing you to Jake Wolfean artist who lives at Outpost Club's East Bushwick House. Jake's made big things happen since moving to New York; read on to find out more:
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I originally grew up in a small town called Lawrenceburg, IN, just outside of Cincinnati, OH. I spent my entire life there until I decided to move to Savannah, GA a year ago to pursue my education in Luxury Fashion Management. In my spare time, I love to write for publications on issues in the fashion industry, or I spend a lot of time on social media researching engagement analytics (I’m such a nerd lol). The social media aspect ties into my passion for photography as well, where I spend most of my time in film, developing by hand.
I ended up in New York by chance actually! I’m here fulfilling an internship position with RKPR, managing sample pulls with fashion publications/celebrity clientele, and creating organic following engagement with social media influencers to better our client’s brand. I’m August I received an offer from my boss with 2 weeks to move to New York, so I took the opportunity and here I am! Haha.
What’s your favorite Outpost memory?
I don’t particularly have a favorite because I have so many. I chose Outpost because I wanted a sense of community in a city where I knew nobody. However, some of my favorite memories have definitely been watching my friend group experience different cultures in a welcoming environment, or sitting around at the table together listening to Lindsey sing with their guitar. It’s a real sense of family here.
Do you have a favorite place in Brooklyn?
I’m definitely basic when I say I love Dumbo (lol). That area in particular reminds me a lot of Cincinnati, so it’s a little feeling of home now that I don’t get to visit often. There’s still so much of Brooklyn I haven’t discovered yet, so if anyone has any recommendations, I want them!
What are you currently working on?
Although I came to New York for a job in fashion PR, I’ve been working on a few projects here and there. I recently was signed to an agency in Manhattan, and now I’ve been working on television shows, commercials, and campaigns! Unfortunately I can’t talk about most of them (damn NDA’s), but I will say to watch next season of Billions on Showtime. Otherwise, I really work a lot with brand influencing on my Instagram, and be sure to look out for the launch of my IGTV channel come January!
