I am a Rapper Storyteller Performer Wordsmith Human

Hi! Lovely to meet you here. My name is Jack.

I’m a performer, rapper, storyteller, and TEDx speaker based in Boulder, Colorado.

I use my art and my words to create empowering stories that inspire people to take control of their lives and create positive change in their communities.

My mission is to help others find their voice and tell their own stories, because learning to reshape my own story changed my life.

My Life Story In a Shell At Core In Short

I went from being a stay-at-home Dad to a rapper who is sharing more and more of his life on more and more stages in more and more places around the country.

My career started in hospitality – and I’ll let you in on a little secret: Restaurants are stages. A highly complex ballet of movements and processes all centered on how to create a great experience for a guest.

This frame of mind has been invaluable in helping me to shape my way of thinking around how to take care of people and how to create a memorable performances.

I graduated from both Harvard and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, realizing each time that my way of thinking and being were never a great fit for these hallowed halls. But they challenged me to be curious about why I was compelled to move in a different direction.


After exploring that curiosity over a decade, I have learned a few things about myself:


– I am an artist.

– I love to perform.

– I derive incredible joy from deep, authentic connection.

– My brain uses words and language in a way that is unique.

– I see infinite potential in human beings.
