As a leader of the OH data team, Jacob specializes in public affairs research. While obtaining two degrees from Arizona State University, he gained experience in battleground politics while interning for a US Senator. Jacob has a unique ability to weave a data-oriented story, transforming a series of seemingly unconnected data points into a digestible deliverable for corporate and public affairs clients alike. His insights are accurate, actionable, and usually founded on details someone less focused would easily miss. One of Jacob’s most notable contributions to the OHPI workload is his contribution to Arizona public opinion polling. He was instrumental in the creation and execution of the Arizona Public Opinion Pulse (AZPOP) a proven, accurate statewide Likely Voter survey that regularly gauges public opinion on the key issues driving Arizona’s political climate.
Jacob graduated summa cum laude from Arizona State University with a bachelor's degree in Political Science and a bachelor’s in Computer Science. Though originally from Seattle, Washington, Jacob has spent the majority of his life in his adopted home state of Arizona.
