As a kid Jake travelled to the most far-flung corners of the globe as a young James Bond, a pirate, a gunslinger, a private eye and a Roman Emperor. In his fantasies he was born in Zanzibar or Constantinople never Leeds. And now fully grown he has managed to travel a lot but never, never enough. Staying in some fantastic rooms with breathtaking views, directing adverts in the Wild West town at Almeria, in Lord of the Rings country in New Zealand and even a documentary on the Dhow filming on the Arabian sea and falling back in love with life on a beach in Mexico. His first feature film is due to commence shooting next year and will (hopefully) be shot in over 135 countries.
